For you 80's kids, a book version of the movie, Labyrinth. I must have seen it when I was 10 or 11. I have a funny nostalgia for fantasy movies made in the 80's, especially ones with Jim Henson's muppets.  (Who else remembers The Dark Crystal and The Secret of NIMH and The Last Unicorn and The Neverending Story?)  Madeleine liked the movie, though she thought David Bowie was weird!  And she loved this book because of the illustrations.

Frustrated with her baby brother, Sarah wishes the goblins would take him.  When they do, she must go through the labyrinth to the castle of the goblin king (played by David Bowie) to rescue him.
