Product description

The beloved animation classic by legendary Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki, My Neighbor Totoro is now retold in novel form. This prestige, hardcover edition features original illustrations by Miyazaki himself, accompanying a story written by veteran children's book author Tsugiko Kubo. Sure to delight both existing fans and new readers! Eleven-year-old Satsuki and her sassy little sister Mei have moved to the country to be closer to their ailing mother. While their father is working, the girls explore their sprawling old house and the forest and fields that surround it. Soon, Satsuki and Mei discover Totoro, a magical forest spirit who takes them on fantastic adventures through the trees and the clouds--and teaches them a lesson about trusting one another.

By Vaso Kafkoula 18 Jun 2014 5

i always prefer books to the movies, even in Totoro's case i almost like them both as much!
i enjoyed the book very much especially the scenes that are not included in the movie which i think that they should be included too.

the only thing i would change is that i'd prefer to see more of the miyazaki's illustrations, i think there are too few included here. but anyway, this book is amazing!
