5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book 26 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover
The book tells the plot of "My Neighbor Totoro" with short paragraphs of text and breathtakingly beautiful images from the film. There is a "Meet the characters" in the beginning and a map of the surroundings at the end and about a 100 pages of sharp and colorful images of print quality in between.

Only when I had read this book I understood what a horrible deed the TV screen (or DVD) does to this film. The animation foreground figures, like people, Totoros and all other moving objects are mostly ok on TV/DVD, since they are rather simple colored surfaces, but the backgrounds lack the stunning quality that can be seen in the images of this book. Prime examples are the picture of Mei in Totoro's cave on page 35 and Satsuki looking out for Mei on pages 84-85. They are works of art worth seeing.

I was definitely positively surprised for the quality and beauty of this book. As a parent to a child who would watch Totoro almost every day, I find the book also pretty handy as a means to discuss the events in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totoro forever 14 Nov 2011
By Zazą
Format:Hardcover
What can I say more than it's a "must have"? It generates something warm inside, and it reminds us of the true spirit of childhood. Totoro is forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book if you child likes the film 9 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
My 18 month old watched 10 mins of Totoro and it became his first 3-syllable word! Since then we had to be strict as he asked to watch it every night - this book has been a great alternative and is absorbing for him as the film. This book is now what he asks for as soon as he wakes up and as a bedtime story... I think he loves it too much!

3.0 out of 5 stars Printing lacks quality 24 April 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Best Ghibly and Miyasaki movie. Book lacks printing quality although it is worthy for adding details about characteres and story. A must have for Ghibly fans, and Totoro fans, if we don't expect to see a reflection of the extreme perfection and beauty of the movies photography and colorful illustrations.

The book is essential for every infant Totoro fan - many pages with wonderful original illustrations of this favorite child story. Though the book was stated as used, it was as good as new - perfect condition. Also the purchase was smooth - quick sending/delivery and very well packaged. Perfect value for the money!
