Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a brilliant book for any fan of the books and more recently the movies. Peter Jackson has done a superb job of adapting the book into the film and with a close relationship with Sibley (who wrote the biography of Jackson), together they have created the perfect book to guide fans in how they created movie magic.
