I love Hayao Miyazaki's films and when i saw this book I was so excited. This book is awsome and so is all of his films.

They sat in silence for a moment, when Chihiro suddenly asked: "Haku? Do you think I'm..... different?" Haku forced a smile. He had a feeling what she REALLY meant by 'different', and if ANYONE was harrassing HIS Chihiro, they would pay. "Of course. That's why everyone here likes you so much. You're a special girl." "Not *that* kind of different." Chihiro said, although she a hint of a smile on her face for a moment. "I mean, like.... an outcast?" Haku frowned. His suspicions had been confirmed. "Who said that?" He demanded. Chihiro shrugged. She kind of wished that she hadn't brought it up, now she sounded like a baby who couldn't take a little pestering. "Just... some girls. Karin and I try to avoid them, but they hate me. Just me, actually: I think they secretly wish Karin would hang out with them. She just says that they're jealous." She snuck a look at Haku, and to her surprise, he was giving her a "well duh" look. "Of course they're jealous." he said with total conviction, but Chihiro wasn't convinced. "What do I have that they could possibly be jealous of?" She asked. She did have ONE thought, but there was NO WAY she was saying it out loud. Then again, she didn't have to: Haku answered her within seconds. "You're smart, funny, clever, kind, brave, and pretty. What do they NOT have to be jealous of?" Chihiro blushed at Haku's answer, but she still replied: "They have loads of friends." "So do you." was Haku's reply. That IS true, Chihiro thought, and was about to change the subject when something unexpected for them both popped out of Chihiro's mouth: "Some of them have someone who loves them." Haku froze. Whattosaywhattosaywhattosay? Chihiro mental kicked herself. You IDIOT!!!, she thought. Now Haku thinks you're pathetic. But Haku quietly said one sentence that Chihiro wasn't expecting: "So do you."

I checked this book out to aid me in a research paper and found that some of the information is incorrect. Dates did not match up with my other sources (which were all consistent with each other) and in describing the process of cel art, Cavallaro contradicts herself and it is very hard to understand. I think with more time and better research this could've been an excellent work, but it is too poorly-edited to be taken seriously. The book I have recommended was written by Miyazaki himself and I feel would be a much more worthy read.
