Cinematic Rick

I'm still a little surprised by how few kids are familiar with The Lightning Thief these days. The minute you introduce the Percy Jackson books to them they become these raging balls of Riordan-adoration. It's an instantaneous reaction. So I suppose I better stock up on our paperback copies of The Lightning Thief, eh? After all, if Chris Columbus is slated to film the first in Riordan's series (and with Harry Potter safely out of the way soon enough) libraries are going to have a veritable feeding frenzy on their hands.

Thanks to Alan Silberberg for the link.

Oh, no, not him. The first two Potter movies are horrible: snapshots of a book rather than an actual movie plot. He won't do justice to The Lightening Thief.

Sigh. Thanks for the heads up, though.

Hmmm...Chris Columbus. Well, I hope he gets a great screenplay.

Fuse, I did nominate Rockstar Rick Riordan for "Hot Man" status a while ago, any further thoughts in that direction? He is not just YA! Here in Texas elementary schools are planning "Percy parties" for "The Titan's Curse' release.
