He chose this story because it is one of his favorites and is all about believing in magic, adventure, and family. One of the main themes in the book is the idea of wanting to stay a kid forever and keep one's innocence. This theme is very relevant, especially today, because kids are in such a hurry to grow up and become adults that they are missing out on the wonders of childhood.
