The Pagemaster

Kirschner, David
A tale of adventure and fantasy, which sends a young boy into the pages of the world's greatest stories. Seeking refuge from a storm, timid Richard Tyler enters an empty library only to be swept away into the magical animated world of The Pagemaster, where legendary characters from literary classics come alive. Guided by a trio of talking books--Adventure, Fantasy and Horror--Richard must conquer his greatest fears before he can find his way home.
