Synopsis:
To escape a raging thunderstorm, young Richard takes refuge in a library where he meets Mr. Dewey, a strange librarian. Dewey turns out to be The Pagemaster, a wizard who transports Richard into a colorful cartoon world. There, Richard is guided by three large walking, talking books named Adventure, Fantasy, and Horror, who send the boy on journeys with classic literary characters, such as Long John Silver, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and Captain Ahab. But despite the fun Richard is having in this fantasy world, he must also find the "Exit" sign -- his only means of escaping back to the real world.

Notes:
The film took almost 3 1/2 years to complete. Shot in DuArt; color by Technicolor. Animation Sequence Director: Glenn Chaika. Animation Supervisors: Robert Lence (story), Don Morgan (layout), Jim Hickey (background), Jeffrey Patch (editor).
