Where the Wild Things Are: The Movie

Perhaps I'm the last to know ... but I came across this today and it brought a huge smile to my face - Where the Wild Things Are is coming out as a movie in October of this year.

What's super amazing is the talent involved. The original book, by Maurice Sendak, was turned into a screenplay by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers. Eggers wrote "A Heartbreak Work of Staggering Genius," which was a book that was real, honest, funny, and sad all at the same time. I loved it.

Here is the trailer. I can't wait to see this! I love that it appears to be an inspiring tail of hope.

I have never heard of the book. I just learned about the movie not long ago.
