In the past few years many children's books have made their way onto the big screen including the Guardians of Ga'Hoole books by Kathryn Lasky, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, The Lorax and Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss and The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick which simply became Hugo for the film and who can forget Shrek! from William Steig that of course became the movie of the same name. This doesn't even scratch the surface of the many others that have been adapted over the years. If you really want a more complete list so that you can read and watch the movies with your children you can check out the bibliography entitled At the Movies here at MRL.
