Bastian Balthasar Bux hides in the attic of the school one morning with a book he "borrowed" from a antique bookstore. Suddenly he finds himself in an amazing world, first as a wittness and afterwards as part of the story and almost lost forever in the world "Fantasien"
The 1980's movie just covers parts of the first 50 pages of the over 300 page book.... Make sure you read the whole story and it will live in your heart forever!
