The Gruffalo, Bridge to Terabithia and The Hunger Games on film
Did you watch the Gruffalo film on TV? I did and I really enjoyed it. The animation and voices were fabulous.
I also watched The Bridge to Terabithia today. Christmas is a great time to watch children's books which have been made into film, isn't it?
Talking of which, does anyone know when the film of The Hunger Games is going to be released? I learned from the web that its in production. It's one of the best children's books I've read and I can't wait to see the film version. I bought my son the second book for Christmas. Apparently you can pre-order the third book, so look out for that too!
Dorothy loves writing and encouraging others to write too! When one of her stories for children won the Pinestein Press Things that go Bump competition she was asked to write three short stories, The Ghost Twin Tales which appeared in the book, Mini Mysteries and Kooky Spookies. Another competition winning story, Munch the Storytelling Cow, was recorded as a podcast by celebrity TV presenter, Gail Porter.
Dorothy is currently studying for an MA in Writing for Children at the University of Central Lancashire and is featured in the UCLan publication Letters to Africa, an exciting publication containing leters, fiction, facts, illustrations and photographs.
