I am a BIG fan of The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. I love the beautifully crafted language and the way DiCamillo talks to you, the reader. However, I'm not so sure how these elements will translate into a movie.
I've been more disappointed with movie adaptations of my favorite books (Tuck Everlasting, Ella Enchanted, on an on..) than I have been thrilled. So, I wasn't suprised when my reaction to the new movie trailer for The Tale of Despereaux was less than luke warm.
What are your thoughts?
