Please tell me you are familiar with the book Where The Wild Things Are? It's a classic. Not so much a classic in the sense of Wuthering Heights and such, but a children's classic. I just assumed everyone had this book read to them as child. I guess not.
I'm sorry to be such a sour pus about all of this. It's just that sometimes I wonder if we aren't robbing our future by taking away all of their challenges. "Here child, you don't even have to take the energy to imagine what this character may sound like. We shall go right ahead and make him a movie and then you can just watch and not use your imagination one little bit. See now child. Isn't that easier? And while you're at it, have as many snackie cakes as you like because you don't need to worry about being healthy and able to run and play outside while you sit here and watch all of these movies."
And yes, just so you know....I will be standing in line to see Where The Wild Things Are on October 16. But I've read the book. I have my imagination. I just want to see if Max sounds as silly in the movie as he did in my father's voice :)
