Steven Spielberg’s classic sci-fi story of interplanetary friendship makes a perfect picture book for the whole family.
When E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released in theaters thirty-five years ago, its bittersweet story enchanted millions and the film surpassed Star Wars to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. Now the cinematic blockbuster is transformed into an illustrated storybook, with colorful, adorable drawings by Kim Smith.
