Release: November 23, 1994

In a live action wraparound, Macaulay Culkin stars as Richard Tyler, an easily bullied, nervous wreck of a kid who's an expert on safety statistics. His parents (Mel Harris and Ed Begley, Jr.) don't know how to inspire him to embrace life boldly. Barely able to leave the house, he ventures out one day, but gets lost in a storm and ends up at a mysterious library. Inside, he slips, is knocks unconscious, and finds himself in a cartoon realm where books come to life. Guided by Adventure (Patrick Stewart), Fantasy (Whoopi Goldberg), and Horror (Frank Welker), he experiences the adventures of classic novels such as Moby Dick and Treasure Island, and he even meets some famed fictional characters such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Leonard Nimoy). Through his experiences in the pages of the legendary books, he confronts his phobias and learns to face life more courageously.
