I wish I had realized that this was only the 1st of ? books and I also most emphatically did not like all the attempted sound effects of walking, turning, dropping things, etc. It was ridiculous and the panels could have existed without those "thwak"s and "Kthump"s, et al. I liked the story a lot, having watched the movie some time ago, and this book was an accurate panel by panel copy of the film but reading what was essentially a comic book portrayal of a fine film was really annoying. Apparently, what I should have done is request Norton's original story, The Borrowers. I'll know better next time.

This book shows "Miyazaki's" good attention to detail in animation. The only thing that surprised Me about this book was that it reads from right to left (like other Japanese comic books)but,I will add that the fact that it does so makes sense if you think about it. (If Hayao were to pick one up to read a copy of it. It would handle how He would expect it to.).I am sad that He is not going to make any more animation.

This book was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to reading the next volume as well as seeing the movie.
