About the Author

Hayao Miyazaki is one of Japan's most beloved animation directors. In 2005 he was awarded the Venice International Film Festival's Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement, and his Studio Ghibli received the festival's Osella Award for overall achievement in 2004. Miyazaki's films include Spirited Away, winner of the 2002 Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature Film, as well as Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and Ponyo, all of which have received great acclaim in the U.S. Miyazaki's other achievements include the highly regarded manga series Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Starting Point: 1979-1996, a collection of essays, interviews, and memoirs that chronicle his early career and the development of his theories of animation. Both are published in English by VIZ Media. "

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hm.. April 10 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute classic April 21 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book for everyone who loves this movie Nov. 19 2007
By J. Nakatsuka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book contains the entire storyline of the movie in both text and illustration and hits all the key events with perfect focus. The 'illustrations' are taken directly from the movie but are very crisp and high quality - not like some books that have poor quality movie stills. Our kids love this movie, have a home made soot-sprite mobile in their bedroom, and are crazy about this book. This is a really nice quality hard cover book and is much better than the comic book version in my opinion. Price is very cheap for what you get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totoro Picture Book March 27 2009
By C. E. Mckenna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book If Your Kid Loved The Movie Jan. 3 2007
By Ike - Published on Amazon.com
The book pretty much follows the story of the movie and is full of movie photos. It's a bit long for a childs book, but my kid loves it and we read it every night.

So if you're kids love the movie and want to see it over and over again, buy and read them the book instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Sept. 2 2008
By E. D. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
If your child (or you!) likes the movie they'll love the picture book! It is basically frames from the film with the (simplified) story. It is a lot longer and mroe in depth than I had realized but my 2 year old (!) is enthralled by it... This is the longest/thickest book he will sit still to read.... Highly recommend as a gift! OR for long car ride/air/train trips

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful book! March 25 2009
By M. Beth Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My daughter wanted a totoro party for her 3rd birthday. I ordered this for one of her gifts. I'm amazed at how nice it is for this price. Lovely pictures from the movie, totoro maps in the back, character explanations in the front, and the fantastic story in the middle. She is going to go crazy for this book. Its a large nice hardcover book with a dust jacket. Very nice quality. I think my daughter will like this better than the movie!!
