  1. Haven’t watched the video yet. Gonna guess Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy
    is in too 3 if the 5.

  2. What the hell Watchmojo? ! “The never ending story” is the title of the
    book where the movie is based on … It does exist … I even own it !

  3. Well, at least Book Of Dragons got an honorable mention; would have been
    nice if it had been discussed a little more, since the presumably unending
    job of editing it and adding to it is a driving force behind Hiccup’s
    exploration and expansion of his world.

  4. No. 1 in my *BOOK* is Pokémon Adventures franchise’s The *Mysteries of the
    Earth*… a book that gary oak/Green uses to evolve his Rhydon into
    Rhyperior… thank you. :]

  5. I’m so sorry to inform that #10 of this list is the WORST choice for a list
    entry WatchMojo has ever made….. The Never Ending Story is a book written
    by the German author Michael Ende, who has also written a lot of content
    for children, such as Momo.
