Hollywood hasnt come out with an original movie since God knows when. I think theyve completerly run out of ideas and have started doing bad remakes of the things we all cherished when we were kids (scooby doo, Fat Albert, GI JOE)...... Yet, finally, i think i see a ray of hope. I think i speak for any and everyone reading this page that this book was one of the most memorable books from their childhood, right along with Goodnite Moon, and Where the Sidewalk Ends- and i think it may just be the remake that nails it. it better be or im gonna be livid!!!
