Reviewing Notes: Children’s Literature Movie Generator

Happy holidays! The blog will be back up and running on January 7. Until then, let’s take a look back at some of my favorite posts from the 100 Scope Notes archives.

Create Your Own Children’s Book Movie Headline!

I’m no math whiz, but lately it seems children’s books are being adapted for the silver screen at a rate of a bunch every year. The other day, when I saw that Ben Stiller was in talks to star in a Mr. Popper’s Penguins flick, I said (in my mind) “I could probably make up a children’s book movie adaptation headline and eventually it would come true!”.

For this purpose, I created the Children’s Book Film Adaptation Headline Generator (click to try it).

Click the button, get a brand new headline. If the following adaptations come true, you heard it here first.

Jamie Foxx and Emil Jannings to Star in Bawdy Film Adaptation of ‘A Year Down Yonder’

David Strathairn and Tom Cruise to Star in Rainy Film Adaptation of ‘The Higher Power of Lucky’

Russell Crowe and Minnie Driver to Star in Immature Film Adaptation of ‘The Tale of Despereaux’
