Interesting Idea

This book is the first volume in a manga series based on the movie "The Secret World of Arrietty" by Hayao Miyazaki. In some ways, it is similar to "My Neighbor Totoro," as both books talking about a human child discovering a "magical" creature. Although this book is great, I enjoyed Miyazaki's other anime books better, such as "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Kiki's Delivery Service". However, if you are a fan of Hayao Miyazaki, this book is worth your time.
