‘Jim Henson's Labyrinth’ written by A.C.H. Smith, illustrated by Brian Froud and overseen by Jim Henson himself will be a real treat for movie lovers who had for the past 30 years enjoyed and grew up with an exciting tale of a Labyrinth through which young Jennifer Connelly must pass due to the challenge set before her by Goblin King acted by David Bowie.
Young girl named Sarah will be left at home to babysit her little brother Toby, but because he keeps crying Sarah, while telling him her favorite story, will carelessly wish the child to the goblins that will bring to the real world fantasy character named Goblin King.
Goblin King will steal her brother bringing him to his castle that is somewhere in inside the big labyrinth full of challenges. Sarah will need to find and rescue Toby before midnight, solving the Goblin King's Labyrinth in 13 hours or her baby brother will also become a goblin…
The decision to make a reprint of this book on 300 pages is one of the news that lately pleased me the most. The movie from the 80s in whose company I spent numerous hours when I was kid, countless times enjoying the courage of young Sarah now continues to live in the pages of this beautifully designed book in which both young and older readers will enjoy while fans will surely decorate with it their bookshelves.
The book comes in a beautiful hardcover with illustrations that depict known images from the movie in a slightly different way so I may even suggest if you by some chance have not seen the movie, first read this book, which gives a new dimension to Hanson's movie - one of those that has marked our childhood, kind of movie that today there is no longer any.
