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. Un-
fortunately, 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 jour-
ney to Jareth's castle, she meets an extraordinary variety
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.
