I wouldn't call this book terrible per-say, but 48 pages of flat words with no vocabulary is hardly what I'd call "magical", although I did love the film when I was a kid.

I will admit I had high hopes for this movie, and then left the theater disappointed. The ending was not well-edited and I thought the outcome had been different from what I expected. I felt let-down by the story instead of uplifted. So, I decided to read the book to explore the ending again, and this time I was not disappointed. So, the film's editor must not have done a very good job at portraying what really happened at the end, but the author did. Ah, how often that very scenerio is true! An ...more

Recommends it for: anyone
While this book is intended for an upper elementary audience I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the movie. The writing is simplistic and the chapters short but that does not take away from the content or meaning.

I must state that I *loved* this movie and therefore equally loved the book. The book goes along with the movie quite splendidly, sharing similiar details and description.

The book begins one chapter earlier and ends on chapter later than the movie.

Great read and I believe anyon

I played the movie in my head the whole time I was reading the book! There were quite a few grammar errors in this book, but most of them were easy to ignore.

It wasn't bad but it was kind of too babyish.

I read this because of a review (my apologies--I don't remember whose) that said it helped make sense of the movie. So now, when I get around to seeing the movie, I'll "get it."

“When King Lear dies in act five, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He has written, 'He dies.' No more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential piece of dramatic literature is, 'He dies.' Now I am not asking you to be happy at my leaving but all I ask you to do is to turn the page and let the next story begin.
-- Mr. Magorium”
