"Richard Tylor, consider this your passport to the wonderful and quite unpredictable world of books. " -Mr. Dewey
I apologize for the sporadic blogging this month. My family and I have spent quite a bit of time fighting the various strains of flu which seem to be circulating this winter.
Thank goodness for The Pagemaster! This is a great movie to have on hand when kids are too sick to play, but well enough to be up and moving around, though lacking energy to do much else.
The Pagemaster tells the story of Richard Tylor, a boy who finds his courage by facing three tests while on a mythical journey to find the exit in a mysterious, Carnegie-like library.
He is aided on this quest by three books: Adventure, Fantasy and Horror. These books befriend Richard and most importantly, provide plenty of light moments and entertaining banter throughout the movie.
The overall message of the movie is that books can strengthen and expand your imagination. All you need to do is give yourself -and a book- a chance.
