Let the wild rumpus start

I don't mean half-term (although actually, it's probably pretty apt). But we're ridiculously excited in our family about the new Where The Wild Things Are movie, even though it doesn't come out until December. It's always been one of our favourite books – I'm sure the Man of the House won't mind me telling you that he 'improvises' with sound effects for the monsters, and one of my favourite opening lines ever has to be 'The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another'. Of course they've had to pad out the story for the movie but the monsters look delightful and totally faithful to Sendak's original drawings.

    My son loves the book and is a serious film critic already at the age of five. He cannot wait to see this and it IS on our list of holiday things to do…

    We can’t wait for this either. Saw a trailer the other day whilst seeing Fantastic Mr Fox, which was also fab! Might read the Dave Eggers book too.

    My little one has just discovered this book & is very excited because his name matches the hero of the story – he’s going to be ooooh so chuffed to find out there is now a film about him ;o)
