The Best & Worst Children's Books Made Into Films

October 16th, 2009 11:59am EDT
Where The Wild Things
Where The Wild Things Are based on the beloved children's book opens in theaters today. Although some critics say the visuals are spectacular while the script is a little thin, it should draw in massive crowds due to its iconic standing in the children's publishing world.

Children's books made into movies go over much better when viewed in two age brackets: when the audience is comprised of children who have recently read the book, or when the audience is comprised of adults so far removed from childhood that anything resembling their favorite book is romanticized and judged in a less se...
