This picture book follows the story line in pictures and text, of the film My Neighbor Totoro.

While their mother is in the hospital, 10-year-old Satsuki and 4-year-old Mei move into an old-fashioned house in the country with their professor father. At the foot of an enormous camphor tree, Mei discovers the nest of King Totoro, a giant forest spirit who resembles an enormous rabbit. Mei and Satsuki learn that Totoro makes the trees grow, and when he flies over the countryside or roars in his thunderous voice, the winds blow. Totoro becomes the protector of the two sisters, watching over them when they wait for their father, and carrying them over the forests on an enchanted journey. When the children worry about their mother, Totoro sends them to visit her via a Catbus, a magical, multi legged creature with a grin the Cheshire Cat might envy.

High quality, sharp illustrations combined with informational character index and map. A great addition to any Miyazaki fan's collection.

I agree the first pages are the best since it tells you info that you wouldn't know otherwise. It's a good book, I enjoyed it :D

Very nice! Totoro is a wonderful story with memorable characters that you fall in love with. This picture book is a great companion piece to the film. We particularly enjoyed the first pages that introduce you to the main characters and give you some interesting information about them - such as how old the different sized Totoro's are!

Miyazaki is a genius, and what a great way to enjoy the Totoro story any time, any place.
