This book is a great example of the power of illustrations. Chris Van Allsburg is fantastic at telling a story through images.
Because of this, his books lends itself especially well to a movie. The book is already so visual that the movie producers didn't need to imagine so much.
This book and movie duo is great for kids who have a lot of energy and love a good adventure. The reading level is spot in the middle of 2nd grade, but older kids enjoy this set as well since it requires imagination.
The movie can be a bit scary, so you may want to try this movie when you're staying home for movie night or have a very trusted sitter.
