Such a beloved book - will it work as a film? Will it be spiky and wild enough?

Well, the trailer looks tempting. By October I expect I shall be very ready for a Wild Rumpus.

My 21 year old daughter is soooooo excited about this movie - she was saying how she's really glad it's live action and not animation - it does look tempting. This film has a lot to live up to. We'll see come October.

Yep, I think this film has our collective imagined childhoods to live up to!

Oh wow! Thanks Nikki! That looks amazing. That is my favorite, favorite children's book -- I've loved it since my third grade teacher read it out loud in class. We made our classroom into a "set" to go with the book -- and with paper and paint and glue, the space was transformed into a wild place.

Never grow up! Howl!

Hey Kirsten,

Just seeing those big monsters gives me a good feeling instantly!
