The Wild Things

So yes, apparently all I talk about nowadays is Where The Wild Things Are, but I just have one more thing to share…..

When I originally heard that one of my favourite authors, Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking work of staggering Genius) was collaborating with Spike Jonze to write the screen play for the movie, I was so so happy. Obviously the original book by Maurice Sendak is a 10 page children’s book and so in order to create a whole 2 hours worth of film this needed some padding out. Anyway from the screen play, Eggers has also created ‘The wild Things’, which is essentially a novelisation of the movie, with slight differences here and there as with any book to movie/movie to book piece of work.

Anyway, go and read it. It won’t take long and look how beautiful teh cover artwork is…
