Movie Alert

Blood and Chocolate by Annette Klause is now a movie, coming out later this month. The story is about a teen werewolf (she-wolf) who falls in love with a human and has to decide between the human and her own pack. I read it when the book came out - a while back, as in several years - and enjoyed it. Check the book out sometime soon.
Neil Gaiman's book, Coraline, is also being made into a movie. What a creepy little book that is! A bored girl opens a locked door in her new home and enters an alternate universe with creepy fake parents and creepy fake friends and she is trapped there! Nothing overtly gross or awful, just creepy! No news on when the movie will come out. Neil is well known in the graphic novel and adult fantasy communities. Coraline was written for middle grade children, though.

Spiderwicke is for younger readers but there is a really cool website, The International Sprite League, dedicated to the magical creatures from that series. What the heck, something to fool around with.

That's it for now.
