The reviews of the Dave Eggers novel of Wild Things have been poor. But his first novel/memoir is truly great and should be read.
The film of Wild Things I actually liked. But if you think of it as a film of the book then you won't be pleased. They are two very separate things; Sendak was closely involved with the film.
Recently seen the Gruffalo (TV and on stage) and the Snowman (stage production, heavy on the ballet). All expanded versions of what are originally very small, short stories. Wild Things I reckon was the most imaginative use of the source material.
There is an animated version of Wild Things; Czech I think and dates from the 70s. Good, but a very literal transition.

Reason: poor sentence construction
At first I bought records, then I started to collect records; now I merely accumulate records.
