Our customer reviews

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!show more
