Stars: 3 1/2
Description: Mo Folchart possesses a secret ability to bring characters from books to life when he reads them aloud. But when Mo accidentally brings a power-hungry villain from a rare children's fable to life, the villain kidnaps Mo's daughter and demands Mo bring other evil fictional characters to life. In an attempt to rescue his daughter, Mo assembles a disparate group of friends --both real and magic--and embarks on a journey to save her and set things right
First of all, I have to say that I think the movie went to fast. About 15 minutes into the movie, the bad guys have already come and stuff. And second of all, the didn't follow the book, they added some stuff from the second book into the movie. But after all of this, I think that if you haven't read the book, you would still like it.
There was some language in this movie and some crudeness, and some of the parts might scare younger children.
I think my favorite part from the whole movie, was the part with The Shadow, and I think that is one of the parts that might scare younger children.
3 1/2 stars

Title: The Bad Beginning
Author: Lemony Snicket
Description: From the very first page in this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune. In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and a cold porridge for breakfast.
The Baudelaire's life is just horrible. Having that fire that killed their parents and that burned down their mansion, and the horrible clothing they have to wear, and most of all, Count Olaf. The mean, greedy, old man that is planing to steal their fortune.
I LOVE this book!
