I did not like this movie at all. It was very hard to finish watching. Sorry Tim Burton. Also worth noting, it's not very kid friendly.
A winner.
Argo is a wonderful film! It's suspenseful, quick paced, interesting, and nice to look at. Well made! It made for a great theater experience.

Also worth noting is John Goodman. He tends to make everything better. Kind of like the Bill Murray effect.
beautiful picture book
This book has the most marvelous illustrations! It's a lovely story about a little girl who doesn't want to go to sleep. I'm sure we all have a little non-sleeper who would enjoy this endearing tale of a little girl who ends up sleeping like a tiger. It would make a great bed time read-aloud.
Another delightful Wes Anderson film. When I saw this in the theater when it first came out I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Everyone told me I'd love it. So I was almost afraid to love it. And I didn't love it. Then I saw it for a second time, and sure enough, I loved it.

It was great to have a couple of 12 year olds as the protagonists. Hello, Bill Murray and Bruce Willis. Witty dialog. A charming plot. A million and one Wes Andersonisms.

File under: Little Boy Adventure Story.
A Good Read
As an adult who enjoys reading young adult novels, I was drawn to this book due to its subject matter. I tend to shy away from YA that sounds like a love story, or is narrated by a fairy, but I couldn't pass up a Peter Pannish story that was getting good reviews.

Yes, you read that correctly, it is narrated by the famous Tinker Bell. I didn't know that until I started reading, and if I had known it, I probably would not have wanted to read it-- I'm that stubborn. But I'm glad I did! I really like the story of Peter Pan and I enjoy the various adaptations that have made into film. I hadn't read any though.

Jodi Lynn Anderson's Tiger Lily tells the story of the romance between Peter Pan and Tiger Lily. It's well written, nicely paced, and a quick read. I really enjoyed being back in Neverland with the Lost Boys, Peter, Wendy, Smee, Hook, and Tiger Lily. I like the idea of Neverland, and that perhaps each of us is still really a child deep down. It's the magical sense of wonder I'm drawn to.

In short, it's a nicely written teenage love story with a big of high adventure involving crocodiles and pirates. Don't let Tink fool you.
