Parental Advisory: More Dahl
YA Fairy Tale

First Shrek!, Now Sylvester

After the success of Shrek!, another William Steig picture book is due to become a movie. This time around, it's Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, whose rights have  just been acquired by  Lions Gate Films.  Nice news for the Steig estate and for the wee fans of Steig's unusual tale about the donkey who morphs into a rock. I worry that a movie version won't get the magic of this story right, but that's just me.

Note to self: Donkeys sell. Must include more in my writing...

Big fat yellow arachnids, too. (Think "Miss Spider.")
