The story of infinite adventures taken on by the young siblings Annie and Jack, has aired in theatres across Japan this January 7th. Since that day on, the original novel by Mary Pope Osborne’s sales have gone up to (if not over) 20 times compared to previous months.
I cannot help but express my happy mood when I read that this story is doing well in both cinemas and bookstores. I have always approved and appreciated well-thought-of children’s books that can teach something the ones reading it (or to whom they are being read). Yes, it might not be “Don’t steal and never lie to your closest ones. Don’t get into a stranger’s car!”, but it is a lot more – believe, trust in life and you will witness that it can bring you a lot more interesting and happy moments and events than if you don’t believe in life and yourself.
