Coming to the theater

Booking through Thursday asks:    If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?

Tough question!!!   Really tough.   At first I thought The Help.  But they're already making a movie, and I'm afraid I'd be disappointed.   Going further back, I'd say the Half Magic series by Edward Eager.  I see some children made a book report silent movie on You Tube of the last scene.  Cute!

What book would YOU like to see in the movie theater or on a DVD?

That looks interesting! I haven't read any of the books in the series yet, but I'm very curious now. :)

I'm not familiar with this series, but it does look intriguing. Thanks for sharing....

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! I read "Half Magic" in 5th grade, like 100 yrs. ago, LOL. I absolutely can't believe you would mention it! I loved that book! Loved it! I did an oral book report on it and got an A+
Wow, thanks for that blast from the past!

I just saw the trailer for The Help a few days ago and it actually looks pretty good.
