Read the book that inspired the classic coming-of-age film before it's back onscreen in select theaters this September!<br> <br> From award-winning German author Michael Ende, The Neverending Story is a classic tale of one boy and the book that magically comes to life. <br> <br> When Bastian happens upon an old book called The Neverending Story , he's swept into the magical world of Fantastica--so much that he finds he has actually become a character in the story! And when he realizes that this mysteriously enchanted world is in great danger, he also discovers that he is the one chosen to save it. Can Bastian overcome the barrier between reality and his imagination in order to save Fantastica?<br> <br> <br> "An instantaneous leap into the magical . . . Energetic, innovative, and perceptive" --The Washington Post <br> <br> "A trumpet blast for the imagination." --Sunday Times

Horn Book Review

Bastian Bux steals a book called 'The Neverending Story' and begins to read it. The text he reads is printed in green, and that which narrates his own experiences is red (both are hard on the eyes). Eventually the stories intertwine and Bastian enters the book he's reading to save the land of Fantastica from destruction. Although Bastian comes out a stronger, more resilient person, 'The Neverending Story' is rambling and sentimental. From HORN BOOK 1997, (c) Copyright 2010.
