ET is back. the film, the merchandising and the novelisation of the screenplay. Which is probably a mixed blessing. But at least the book of the film is worth the price of admission. For a mere 6.99 you can relive the adventures of ET and his human friends in a novelisation that is both true to the movie while also having some real literary worth - which is not always the case with these things.

Kotzwinkle's obvious liking for his subject matter, combined with his skills as a wordsmith, breathes life into the celluloid characters. This is a no mere screen-to-page reworking - it is a 'real' book, and an entertaining one. If only all children's books were this good then literacy rates among the young might improve - it seems that the ET magic is still working.
