I am not a frequent movie-goer, but the upcoming trio of movies based on children’s books has got me all excited!
First will be the live action movie of Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are,” on Oct. 16. You can view the trailer here.
Then on Nov. 13, we’ll get the animated film of Roald Dahl’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” voiced by a star-studded cast including Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray. I really don’t like the trend to have superstars voicing the characters in animated movies, because I can’t help seeing the actor instead of the animator’s creation. AND I’m not a huge Clooney fan. But my son and I are reading the book aloud this summer, so we’ll surely go see it together. Here’s the link.
I am most looking forward to the March 2010 release of Tim Burton’s imagining of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” You just know it’s going to be amazing to look at and, with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, brilliantly acted. The movie also stars Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover, and Helena Bonham Carter. The trailer was just released this week, and WOW! Check it out.
Now’s the time to re-read the books and start saving up for the popcorn!

Families scatttered around the block on a Photo Scavenger Hunt. Some of the items they had to find? A sign, a wall, a piece of litter, something blue, part of a car, something alive, a good place to build a nest. This was not a race; the young photographers were charged with using their creative eyes to see common things in a new way. Digital photos were downloaded to a slide show that can be viewed in the Children’s Department. Here are a few of their shots.
