It's a truly great book, isn't it? YEs it is. So what do we make of this?
any news on Wes Anderson's stop-animation Fantastic Mr Fox?
but it sounds great. Henry Selick, who made "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "James and the Giant Peach" is apparently designing it, which means it'll look incredible. Although AICN says he's not on board any more. Tentative casting here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0432283/
D'you want to go and see Fantastic Mr Fox at Regent's Park Theatre? Hannah was telling me about it the other day and I got really excited.
let's do it.
if he came out to join in the performance it'd be the best thing ever.
how do you tempt foxes? We should try.
I love that book.
This is going to be fantastic. I think I just weed a little bit.
Am I the only person to have had their childhood destroyed by that evil excuse for a book?
You're kidding, right? It's one of my favourite books. Note: not one of my favourite children's books.
How did this "evil excuse for a book" destroy your childhood?
for YEARS. Those things. They haunted me. I pretended to be ill every story hour in primary school in case they chose it.
I'm trying not to be too excited, but I reckon there's a chance this will totally rule. Or it could be awful. Who noze?
NO! You're all crazy. I need to stop this. Now.
freeze bread? ;)
I'd managed to block this horrible thing out of my head for so long. It can't return. It just can't.
blokes driving round in a circle will ya?
relaxing. You can't have nightmares over CARS.
being hit by a car
someone you know crashing a car
the pixar film 'cars'
I could go on.........
as your pink slippers shaped like bunny rabbits
Lottie has pink slippers shaped like bunny rabbits? Now THAT'S scary.
When the dog got killered. :(
and I do NOT have pink bunny slippers. Sicko.
but if they ruin it, I'll hunt each one of them down. Mark my words.
but I have faith in Spike Jonze doing this properly.
there's a Wild Things-themed garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, though the connection seems a bit tenuous to me:
Although if I was actually capable of stealing thoughts, that'd be a better gimmick.
Forrest whittaker too. Excellent. or shit.
This really confused me. I was scrolling down the board, thinking "OK, everyone's starting their own WTWTA thread for a laugh. Oh! Eh? I didn't post that..."
I love dave eggers, he can't do much wrong so for that reason i'm in.
the book is good, but i remember willy the wimp much better cos the drawings were all surreal and magritte-y
I am unfamiliar with Willy the Wimp; I'll investigate. Maybe that could be the next Book Club choice.
NOW I remember this book. Google Image Search brought it all back.
about the disembodied feet images and floating umbrellas and the book in question is 'willy the dreamer' which was fifth in the series. it was ace.
yes, let's follow that up with thomas the tank engine. we should definitely do the novel version of where the wild things are - am i completely imagining eggers has written a novel version of it too?
but Wikipedia has this:
The Wild Things (working title) (novel inspired by Where the Wild Things Are, to be released alongside the film) (2009)
