Adaptation


This week I watched the Oscar-nominated film Little Miss Sunshine on DVD. Enjoyable though it was, it veered greatly from the book. What happened to our heroine's encounter with Mr Chatterbox in the High Street? And at no point in the book is there any mention of a gay, suicidal Proust professor.

I heartily recommend Roger Hargreaves' classic, by the way. I read it in one sitting.

  3. Mr. Men was my all time favourite childhood books - quite possibly the first cartoons I ever drew (although I didn't know they were cartoons at the time).
