We went to see Wimpy Kid, and Sheryl and I were wondering--what makes a certain book a phenomenom
while others languish on the shelf? I know the cartoons attract the kids and the slightly naughty words perhaps, but it is truly junior high speak (maybe that's the draw). Who knows? Wish I could write one!
And junior high/middle school--never want to revisit it either as a teacher or a student! Bless all those long-suffering teachers who love it.
Some good kid's movies coming up, at least the previews were interesting: A new take on The Karate Kid and Ramona and Beezus. I had read that Beverly Cleary said she would NEVER allow her books to be made into movies. Guess the money got too good.
I think it is a bummer that some of the recent movies are going 3D. I have not been that impressed with the technology this time around. Guess I have been around too long. I think it is just a ploy to make more money, as if....
