Mischief, of one kind, and another

March 27, 2009

Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are” is one of my favourite kids books. I’ve read it to my girls since before they were born and on one memorable occasion we had a host of people over for dinner and they all joined in with the Wild Rumpus, which was very cool indeed.

And now there’s a movie.

And before you get all “They ruined the Grinch how can they do this any justice at all” take a look at the trailer. High Definition if you can wait for it.

Now that’s not at all what I expected. That looks like something we could all rumpus to.

Mind you, it’s Spike Lee’s adaptation of “Little Bear” I’m hanging out for. He’s sure to explore the ramifications of racial invectives and their meaning in a world where some animals talk but others are dumb.
