First of all, I think the creators did a pretty good job with this one. It's very hard to take a 759 page book and turn it into a well rounded movie. Especially with a story like Harry Potter. I will also give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that some of the explanations that should have been apart of the first half, presents itself in the second half. For example:
I do have to say, I liked where they ended this first half and the movie had some good funny moments. I found myself laughing more than I expected. Now, for my favorite part: the reading of The Tale of the Three Brothers. The second half comes to theaters July 15, 2011. Are you ready? I know I am.
It’s not often you see kids reading books of poetry. Except for Shell Silverstein, I know I never did as a kid. I always found them to be bland and confusing. Then my reading buddy, a kid a read to every Friday during lunch, picks up this book. 'The Swamps of Sleethe?' I thought. 'Alright, I already like the bold color in the cover.' But when I opened the book, I found more than just a bold cover.
For starters, all the pages where just as bold and colorful as the cover. The bright colors and pictures really draw you into the book. No more bland poetry. Each of the 19 poems are about weird and scary planets that no human should visit, but if you do beware the demon birds from Lonithor will get you. For an added bonus, some of the planet names are anagrams and for us readers, Prelutsky provides clues on how to pronounce some of the weirder planet and creature names.
