Books to Movies : Where the Wild Things Are, The Cat in the Hat, The Last Airbender, Twilight

Where the Wild Things Are tells of the adventures of a young boy named Max who, after being sent to bed for misbehaving, imagines that he sails away to where the wild things are. Max is loved by the wild creatures who make him their King, though he soon longs to be back home with his family.

THE CAT IN THE HAT by Dr. Seuss was first published in 1957 and remains one of the top ten bestselling hardcover children’s books of all time. The mischievous feline visitor in the striped stove pipe hat makes his big screen debut with this live-action production, which will bring the off-kilter Dr. Seuss characters — as well as some new ones created especially for the film — to life on the big screen.
