When Anna and Henry's odd uncle sends them to find their Christmas present with a riddle, they find themselves climbing the Empire State Building with King Kong, drinking tea with Alice in Wonderland, and giving an old sad man his childhood sled. With rich illustrations and an appendix describing all of the films and movie stars that Anna and Henry meet, this is a wonderful and hilarious introduction to some of the greatest films of all time.
