HUGO & WIMPY HIT THE BIG SCREEN

What do you call those books with too many pictures to be straight-up chapter books, but too many words to be comic books? Comics Lit maybe?

Well now you can call two of them movies!

The Beat has a trailer for the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID adaptation hitting theaters April 2.

And my buddy George Merchan (he who built this glorious blog you see now) has some fantastic news. Martin Scorsese is ready to adapt Brian Selznick's THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET. George provides all the details HERE at JoBlo.com. Let's hope this will bolster the trend of talented directors taking on kid's literature. Or should I say comics lit?

You know what? Maybe not. When I say "comics lit" over and over it starts to sound very dirty.
