What happens when you wish for something terrible...and your wish comes true? Young Sarah is about to find out. Left at home to mind her baby brother, Toby, she finds herself trying to comfort a screaming infant as a wild storm rages about the house. In a fit of temper, she wishes that the goblins would come and take the child away. Unfortunately, they do.
Sarah then plunges into a
whirlwind adventure. If she cannot reach the center of the mysterious
Labyrinth within thirteen hours, Jareth--King of the Goblins--will keep
Toby forever. In the twists and turns of her dangerous journey to
Jareth's castle, she meets an extraordinary variety of of strange characters,
some more friendly than others. But none of them will be able to
help her unless she musters the courage to challenge Jareth--no matter
what the odds.
