FIRST IMPRESSIONS: OoooooMFG!!! This book was a pivotal stepping stone in my very early childhood. It was one of the few things I vividly remember when I was learning to read as an extrememly young child. To see that one of my favorite independent film directors is bringing this to the screen is like a personal love letter to me. Seeing this trailer resurrected the kid in me, so you can bet your fuzzy butt I’ll be rushing to see this one.
