About the StoryThe Book of Living Magic is an adventure game set in the Lands of Dream. It is the story of a girl with the terrible name of Raven Locks Smith, who travels to the faraway Mountains of Oddness to find the mysterious Book of Living Magic.
All you need to play it is a mouse or any similar rodent (though a capybara may be too large to use efficiently). Items are used automatically, if you have them, and you can click on the scroll to see what you currently need to accomplish.
The controls are really very simple, but remember: itís the journey that counts, not the destination. Take your time. Explore. Examine the details. Enjoy your time in the Mountains of Oddness.

Admittedly, the point-and-click interface has its shortcomings -- for example, conversation topics give away crucial plot points, before they've been introduced organically. But i'm honestly willing to overlook such (potentially fundamental) design flaws, because it's outweighed by the detail-rich wonder of discovering the world-at-large. Even more impressive, most of the puzzles can be reasoned out quite sensibly, in spite of the patently surreal setting.
Needless to say, if you're fond of the narrative tradition that includes the Oz series, Labyrinth, and a sizable chunk of Neil Gaiman's work, then you probably ought to give The Book of Living Magic a solid playthrough.
