Miyazaki Hayao (writer).

Read in 2021.

Read in Turning Point.

A proposal to reprint three of Westall’s juvenile novels in one volume, with manga interludes and other materials by Miyazaki to help sell the package, because he likes Westall.

Starting Point does not date this proposal, but notes that something like its realization was published on 2006-10-05.
