The book has lots of pictures from the film and they are arranged in the style of a comic magazine.
It gives lots of colour and interest with little speach bubbles that a child could be the one to "read" as the pages are turned.
Unusual and interesting.

My First Picture Book ever. I have seen other peoples, but could not afford them. This is of my favourite tale- the Borrowers by Studio Ghibli. Excellent intro, art and story plotting.

HASH(0x9c0cd9f0) out of 5 stars A wonderful companion book to The Secret World of Arietty (the film) 22 Feb. 2012
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My seven-year-old and I are great fans of Studio Ghibli productions and watched The Secret World of Arietty last weekend. In the tradition of Hayao Miyazaki's animated films, Arietty (screenplay by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa, directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi) is full of wonder and vivid, detailed hand-drawn animation.

Inspired by Mary Norton's The Borrowers, The Secret World of Arietty centers on a family of little people called The Borrowers, who live in a quiet old house set amidst nature. The family of little people comprise father Pod, over-anxious mother Homily, and teen daughter Arietty who is a budding explorer and yearns for adventure.

The borrowers' quiet existence is brought to an end with the arrival of twelve-year-old Shawn, a sickly young boy who has been sent by his parents to his aunt's house in the country, while he awaits to undergo an operation. Shawn has heard stories of the little people from his mother, and when he spies Arietty flitting among the flowers one day, it changes the course of both their lives. Can a 'bean' (human being) be friends with a borrower? Or are their worlds incompatible?

This beautifully-illustrated picture book/ graphic novel contains lots of color illustrations as seen in the movie, with text to accompany the illustrations. There is enough text here to convey the essence of the story, and my seven-year-old was completely absorbed in the book, reading independently and delighting in the illustrations. I'd recommend this to fans of the movie, and for anyone who appreciates a well-illustrated story.

By Matthew Seitz - Published on Amazon.com

My 5-year-old daughter and I really enjoyed reading this together. The art is beautiful and we root for the characters. She had previously enjoyed other Studio Ghibli picture books, My Neighbor Totoro Picture Book (The Art of My Neighbor Totoro) and Kiki's Delivery Service Picture Book[ KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE PICTURE BOOK ] by Miyazaki, Hayao (Author) Jun-01-06[ Hardcover ]

HASH(0x9cc0eac8) out of 5 stars The Secret World of Arrietty Picture Book 24 Nov. 2012
By Jean M Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I watched the movie with my two grandchildren, Nicholas 9 and Victoria 5. This was the first time ever that Victoria sat still and was totally captivated by Arrietty and the story. I bought the book for her for Christmas because she will be delighted to have more of Arrietty. The book is perfectly beautiful and follows the movie exactly. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9d11c010) out of 5 stars More Ghibli 3 Dec. 2012
By Avivi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I happen to love all the Studio Ghibli movie story books. These larger hard cover formats rather than the smaller multisoft covers are story boarded even better, If you would love to share the story of Arrietty with young children than this is the best way for them to get aquatinted with the story.

HASH(0x9d11c04c) out of 5 stars So Beautiful 10 April 2013
By WendyLou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Wow is this book beautiful. The illustrations are amazing, and with the captions and the story lines this book is just like watching the movie. My daughter, who was 4 1/2 when we got this, would sit for an hour while we read it. Then we would act out scenes and read more.
