Jana - this was the book I gave my son when he was born; I get all sappy and sentimental when I hear about it....*sigh*.....

I liked this book better when I was little than I do as a parent. I'm not sure why... maybe because I was SO into it as a little kid that when I brought it back out it did not quite live up to my exaggerated memory of it. But it is still awesome. I wonder how they can possibly turn it into a 90 minute movie. We shall see.

The actual book doesn't have that much to it, but from the trailer it looks like they got the heart of the story right.

And how can you ever forget the illustrations? Those are just some of the best illustrations ever.

Looks awesome. But I agree - turning it into a 90 minute movie could be either great or disastrous. The quickie trailer is almost enough for me. Looks like they added some extra family drama to it, but then again, I don't remember the story in the book all that well. It's the illustrations that really made that book come alive for me.
