This is the story of a young boy named Richard Tyler, who spouts statistics about the possibility of accidents. So much so, he is scared to do anything that might endanger him, like riding his bike, or climbing into his treehouse. While riding his bike home, Richard finds shelter from a storm inside a nearby library. Richard slips and is knocked unconscious while exploring a rotunda in the library. Upon awakening, he is led on a journey through conflicts and events that resemble fictional stories, keeping him from finding the exit from the library. Written by

I absolutely love this movie as well, I remember having it on video when i was young and i wore it out so i had to buy another one but couldn't find it anywhere,I'm trying to get it on DVD at the moment as well.Something that i don't understand is that no one I know seems to have ever heard of it!Which is just ridiculous! I've always been a real book worm and when I was younger this film summed up everything I loved about books, and I guess it still does! It's amazing how such a brilliant film can go unnoticed, I honestly learnt some important lessons from it, as I am sure many other children did, and it's one of the most memorable movies from my childhood! If you get the chance to watch this film, please please do!Ignore everything written by the 'proper' critics and watch it for yourself before deciding what you think!
