Omri, a young boy growing up in Brooklyn, receives an odd variety of presents for his birthday: a wooden cabinet from his older brother, a set of antique keys from his mother and a tiny plastic model of an Indian from his best friend Patrick.
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

it has a beautiful idea - introduce the young people in the great books universe.than, it is nice, not extraordinary but decent, amusing option for each age. it is a common film but few moments, the different way to discover the books, crumbs from another films, dust of other characters for actors, the soft feeling of a animation movie are good ingredients for not rejected it. the mixture between actors and animation is not really inspired but it is not boring or deep unrealistic. and, more important, Culkin is himself. so, not surprises. or great expectations. a film about books can not be an error. at least, the good intentions are precious. this film is an example.
