Who is Munchausen - the Lying Baron? Or the "Most truthful person alive"? Where is the line between truth and fiction drawn? Does it even matter, especially if you're traveling with the most resourceful, brave and witty partner, who can show you the way to the moon itself! Just don't forget to grab your imagination on your way out the door, for there are adventures that wait for you - a meeting with a wolf in the snowy Russian plains, and another with either an African lion or a polar bear!
