    • This is a book I bought and read to my son and I've always loved it. A little boy could get lost in the world of books if he falls right into the pages. The illustrations are delightful and the story delves into all the genres of books including adventure and horror. I think it's possible I loved this every bit as much when I read it to him as my son did. It's one that I will now re-read and enjoy all over again.

    • When I was 10-11 yrs old, I was so obsessed with this story and the illustrations. I showed it to my fifth grade teacher and she said something along the lines of "this is for people who truly care about literature". (Yep).

    • When I was around nine or ten years old, my teacher read this to our class and we loved it. Aside from the teacher's really funny Junie B. Jones impression, this book was just about the best part of third grade! I found it at a neighbor's garage sale and I freaked out, bought it, and then ran home to the couch. I didn't get up until two hours later when I finished the entire book. It's not really the kind of book where you admire the unique style or fancy metaphors or anything, but it's a great [...]

    • Great story with fantastic illustrations. One small error: The word "afraid" was omitted in the sentence starting on page 79 and ending on page 80. It reads, "Though Richard was (turn page 79) (start page 80) of heights, the ride excited him.

    • A shy, scared little boy finds adventure and confidence in a magical library. Magical library, adventure abundant within the stacks. Kicka$$ illustrations, Gaining a new outlook in the world we live in. What isn't there to love!?

    • There was an error on page 92. Richard wears glasses, however, in the illustration he has none.

    • Great read on the value of good stories.

    • I never saw the movie with Mac Culkin, so I have no biased for the book. I read Pagemaster with my daughter and she really enjoyed it. We had a great time talking about all the references to classics such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Moby Dick (which she renamed Moby Richard because she is in middle school and only recently learned that OTHER meaning for, well), Alice in Wonderland, Thumbelina, and the many, many more titles either mentioned by name, tag line, picture, or other means. Some people [...]

    • I loved this movie when I was a kid! Anything Kirschner made was amazing to me and this book was no exception! In fact, I didn't know that this story was even in book form until I found it at Half Price Books the other day! It's a pretty quick readok me about 2-3 hours and has beautiful pictures! Richard Tyler is a different kind of 10 year-old. He fears any and everything. He's the kind of kid that gets made fun of especially when he busts out his statistics on the danger of whatever presents i [...]

    • Okay, I know the film “The Pagemaster” gets a lot of flak for being a box office flop, but I love this movie. Loved it as a kid, and love it now as an adult (librarian and parent) it’s corny and quirky and sometime sloppy and rushed. But I still love it (sue me)I have to give the creators credit for actually making this book at the time of the production of the film. Because if you have a film trying to inspire kids to read…shouldn’t you maybe have a book as well? I applause that they [...]

    • Un niño asustadizo, una tormenta inesperada y una biblioteca encantada que encierra la aventura más increíble que cualquiera pueda imaginar.Richard Tyler no es un niño de diez años corriente. Le atemoriza montar en bicicleta sin protección, no se atreve a dormir en su casa del árbol, evita las alturas con todas sus fuerzas y, bajo ningún concepto, se atrevería a salir a mojarse bajo la lluvia por miedo a que un rayo le alcanzase. Sin embargo, su vida cambia de forma radical cuando una t [...]

      The idea of a wimpy kid stumbling into a library that comes alive with well known genres and titles is ingenious. The boy finds courage through encounters with library book characters and stories. The premise was just a stellar idea but somehow the text is just not a pageturner. lt was too brief for a chapter book, but too long for an easy fiction!Great for picture book genre but the reading level does not work with the content either. A child would have to have had a lot of experience with lite [...]

    • Forgot to add this one because it's not on my shelf but it's mine. I got this for my birthday and read it for a book presentation in first year of school. It got me even more interested in literature not to mention the gorgeousness of the illustrations which make the story come alive and jump off the pages. There's everything for everyone : horror, fairies, dragons, pirates Serves as a great introduction to world literature for all children.

    • Aunque para muchas personas este libro no se merezca tanta puntuación, yo siempre soy generosa con los libros que puedo leerlos una y otra vez, y siguen conmoviéndome de la misma manera.Además, los libros siempre han sido unos grandes maestros, es muy triste leer un libro y no querer aprender nada de ellos. Creo que el resto me lo reservaré para la reseña del blog, que este lo tengo que reseñar sí o sí.

    • An absolutely brilliant book, i am VERY familiar with the story as i have loved it since it came out basically.Its as special to me as The land of forgotten beasts by Barbara Wersba, it reminds me very much of that storyline, forgotten books like the forgotten beastsFINITELY worth reading and if you can't find a copy, see the film as thats just as amazing unusually.

    • I started reading this to my son a month or two ago. We read a few pages every night he was with me. I received this book as a little girl and never got past the first couple of pages. It was such a cute story about a boy who overcomes his fears and learns to step out into adventure. An amazing book for the both of us to enjoy together.

    • A beautiful story but poorly and simplistically written. A lot of times the narrative jumped from point A to point F without covering what happened in between. After having seen the movie as a child and idolizing the Pagemaster as a sort of god, I was greatly looking forward to this book but was sadly disappointed. The illustrations, however, are absolutely amazing.

      The Pagemaster was and still is one of my favourite childhood films even if it was a box office bomb, it filled my head with possibilities and an escape from reality. The book adaptation lives up to the film in my opinion, and it has some incredible illustrations.

    • I had seen the movie first and it had instantly become one of my fab route movies despite the fact of the old style of it. I had just gotten the book this morning and the copy I have had the most beautiful illustrations and it was a really good read.

    • Mi libro de infancia favorito.

    • I liked the three books, adventure,fantasy, and horror. The pagemaster led Jack to these books and brought them to life. If you like books about going on a quest you should read this.

    • What I loved best about this work was the way it reminds us how exciting books can be. Like we needed any help, right? ;-)

    • I loved the illustrations in this.

    • engaging, enthusiastic, adventurous book. Brilliant descriptions and illustrations.

    • So if I were a dweeby little scared-cat, maybe I would have gotten an awesome adventure?Man, kids just can't win.

    • Revisited my childhood.

      Love this book! It was so cute.

    • This book is an excellent read aloud for any child ages five to ten, especially boys. The pictures are beautiful and the story is so clever. I loved the literary allusions!
