I know I’ve posted about Hayao Miyazaki before, but I just can’t resist! I’m such a huge fan. Today I want to celebrate all things Totoro! It’s the 25th anniversary of the movie, My Neighbor Totoro. This movie was absolutely a part of my childhood just as much as the classic Disney movies were. I still want a giant Totoro to cuddle with and a Catbus to take me around the country.
To celebrate the anniversary of the film, two books are being released. A novelization of the movie is now available featuring original watercolor illustrations by Miyazaki and a story by author Tsugiko Kubo. You can also buy an updated picture book with artwork from the movie.
