Book review

One of the great benefits of being a parent is getting to read the books that the children bring home. Some of them are exquisite. Like this one:

Scorsese has a movie version out, and maybe we'll make a rare journey to the movies to see it, but we're extremely glad to have experienced the book first. It's something.

We have LOVED that book in our house! And I've heard some very good reviews about the movie. We're debating springing for the tickets...only out in 3D, so 6 tickets is rather prohibitive. But this is one that just won't be the same on Netflix.

And Brian Selznick has a new book out - Wonderstruck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonderstruck_%28book%29). It looks great. I saw it this weekend at my neighborhood bookstore.

We saw this in 3D at Cinetopia. Wow. I thought it was definitely worth the $11 ticket price. Scorsese did it right.

Here's an article about the movie


"Martin Scorsese goes kinder, gentler with 'Hugo'
The director's experience as a parent drew him to take on the child-friendly 3-D film."
