I received a copy of this book from the publisher, in exchange for my honest review

In this children's storybook, experience the endlessly imaginative world of Jim Henson's Labyrinth, through the eyes of it's most fantastical and beloved characters! 

Witness a day in the life of Sir Didymus, the recklessly heroic fox-terrier; Ludo, the lovable oaf; Hoggle, an ever-loyal companion; and others as they play games, work together, and revel in the magic of the Labyrinth. 

Written and gorgeously illustrated by acclaimed children's book illustrator Cory Godbey, Jim Henson's Labyrinth Tales, takes readers deep into the adventure where magic knows no bounds. 

Now fans can relive the magic, adventure and wonder of Jim Henson's Labyrinth world, over and over again. This book is not only a great way to introduce readers to this beloved world and characters, it's wonderful being able to revisit this world through each of the tales. 

This book is a visually stunning! Godbey did an amazing job at bringing this book to life not only in the way he wrote it, but with his beautifully illustrations as well. He captured the look, and feel of not only the world of Labyrinth, but each of the characters as well. This book is a stunning compliment to the movie.

I love that each tale is told from the point of view of each of the characters. I think I may have fallen in love with them even more. What a beautiful tribute to the 30th anniversary of Labyrinth. This book is a must have for Labyrinth fans all ages! Now I need to go rematch this movie. 

I'd highly recommend this book, which is out in both book stores and comic book stores.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
