It all began with a mysterious letter being left at a little bookstore for authors Tony Diterlizzi and Holly Black. the letter's closing lines:"We just want people to know about this. The stuff that has happened to us could happen to anyone."
Little could they imagine the remarkable adventure that awaited them as they followed Jared, Simon and Mallory Grace with a strange old book into a world filled with elves, goblins, dwarves, trolls and a fantastical menagerie of other creatures.
Now these amazing adventures have been made into a major motion picture, in cinemas now, starring Freddie Highmore, Mary-Louise Parker, Nick Nolte, Martin Short, David Strathairn, Sarah Bolger, Joan Plowright, Izabella Miko and Andrew McCarthy.
To celebrate the movie, Simon & Schuster are re-releasing the original series in movie tie-in editions as well as an Official Movie Companion, Movie storybook plus a variety of sticker and activity books.
Get ready to enter a world you never knew existed.... it's closer than you think.
