When Your Book Becomes a Movie
For every happy Rowling there's a couple dozen unhappy LeGuins. Such is the world of book-to-film adaptations. In Wizard Oil: When Your Book Becomes a Movie: pitfalls, rewards, and Volkswagen Beetles Ms. Carol Pinchefsky gives a quick glance to fantasy novels turned cinematical expressions. It's not strictly kidlit-related, but poor Ursula LeGuin's cries of pain (bad news: The second adaption of Earthsea entitled Gedo Senki isn't any good either, apparently) are worth a looksee.
Thanks to Finding Wonderland for the link.
