    Read this to my daughter recently A very mixed bag.First off I should say that although the book was written in 1979 it reads as though it were written in 1939 The translator has consistently reached for the most complicated high falutin word available and as a result the child s book ends up unreadable incomprehensible to many modern kids I m not one for dumbing down, but this goes the other way pointlessly.I saw the film around the time it came out years a

    , The first and still most luminous story that urged me to stop running away from my life into books and start weaving books back into my life If this sounds too abstract, consider the Human Library a child of The Neverending Story, a sister of Moonchild.This book made me polish my German enough to read it in the original And make notes of important mistakes in the Bulgarian translation It made me itch to create a MUSH, where no two lands of Fantasti , The first and still most luminous story
