The Neverending story by A story that your children will wish never ends. The movies are based on the books, but only follow the books loosely (and sometimes, not at all). Basically, reading the books is a completely different experience. Like other children’s classics (Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan), there are themes in the stories that apply to life, regardless of age. The Neverending Story is literally a story within a story, and behind this story is the story itself. It’s a story of vast imagination and colorful characters of adventures and magic and saving the world and maybe a princess as well. A lovely and enduring story that’s entertained a generation of children.
