It's hard not to sing out loud the theme song from the movie.
When you get a chance, pop on over to Google's homepage and admire today's Google Doodles commemorating the 37th anniversary of the first publication of The Neverending Story, by Michael Ende.
I'm a child of the 80's, so like a lot of kids back then I saw the movie first. Epic comfort viewing, but I hated watching it with my brothers because they would make fun of me for crying during the sad moments. Anyway, it wasn't until I got to high school that I finally got a hold of the book and discovered just how large Bastian's role in The Neverending Story actually was.
I highly recommend reading the book yourself if you can get a hold of a copy at your local library.
