A Banner Day
Three completely unrelated items:
1. The City of Ember movie is coming out 10.10.08. How do I know? The movie poster was just released. Well, I’m not sure if you’d call it a poster or a banner – oh, why not just click below and decide for yourself.
2. “Choose Your Own Adventure” map-making. I hereby declare that the last secret of childhood has been ruined. Someone went and mapped out “The Mystery of Chimney Rock”. Now excuse me while I build a time machine to give this little cheat-sheet to my 4th grade self. I am going to be so pumped! (thanks to Boing Boing for the link)
3. Social networking with cartoons. TOON books are now on Facebook. Click below to take a look at the page and become a fan of these “hardcover comics for early readers”. (thanks to Kids Comics for the link)
