Undaunted by this curse, her continuing adventures introduce her to the vainglorious wizard Howl and his curious castlemates. Two years ago, VIZ Media released a similar book inspired by Spirited Away, the movie which garnered an Academy Award for director Hayao Miyazaki. Another picture book for My Neighbor Totoro is planned for later this year. Now, add Howl's Moving Castle to this list of must-have movie books.
