My 2 year old daughter was introduced to Totoro by our neighbour dropping off a copy. My neighbour introduced us to My Neighbour Totoro, yes, you read that correctly. We had not heard of Totoro or Kiki's Delivery Service and were quite skeptical when he briefly described the story and characters. A side note on our neighbour... we live in TO and bought a semi-detached about three years ago. My first meeting with our neighbour goes like this:

Me: (After hellos, and small talk) How long have you lived here?
Him: I don't even know anymore. Over 40 years.
Me: Wow. You don't even look that old.
Him: I'm 76.
Me: Wow! You don't look it. What's your secret to looking so young?
Him: (shrugs) Booze, drugs, loose women.

Needless to say, I love my neighbour right from the get-go, but when this guy says "I've got a video of Japanese animation your daughter will love..." As I said, this seemed a little sketchy; nevertheless, our daughter was only interested in YouTube on the iPad so we gave this a shot because a little TV is a welcome break for any parent. So, naturally, our daughter loves Totoro right away, and laughs and shouts every time Totoro makes an appearance. She sings along to all the songs.

So, with Xmas coming we looking for some Miyazaki paraphernalia. We ordered this book, and the Kiki book too, with a resigned attitude that it was going to be all that was available. We are still reeling over the quality of this book. It is a beautiful companion for a young child to the movies. Totoro is over 25 years old now, and not a North American invention so that limits the amount of swag for the movie, but if we never find something other than this book - we're still good.

Each and every child should watch this movie. It's a piece of art. Beautiful graphics throughout, made by watercolors. A beautiful story of two sisters moving to a new home in a countryside village in Japan. They discover the local believes and meet the great Totoro. So inspiring.

My girlfriend loves Totoro, so I bought this as a Christmas gift for her. Unfortunately, I received it with some damage. The front cover had a tear at the bottom. It seems like it was carelessly packaged. Not a big deal, but a little disappointing.

My sons watched the CD to begin with their advanture with Totoro. The book just gave both my boys a way to tell their own thought about the story. Plus the pics are very nicey done. good one.
