Challenge: A Book Which was Made into a Movie.
I remember well, the shiny, silver, holographic copy of Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism which sat on my shelves a teenager alongside its equally shiny, gold, holographic sequel.
It’s not the most obvious choice for a book which was made into a movie, mainly because the movie seems to have been a flop. I’ve never heard anyone rave about it, don’t recall it being on at the cinema and only recently heard of it myself. But it’s for its obscurity that I chose it to be this week’s reading Challenge.
Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng follows the main character; yes, you’ve guessed it! Molly Moon; an orphan who lives in an orphanage called Hardwick House in Briersville, England. She’s generally an underdog character, with only one friend. When she has a fall out with said friend one day, she runs off to the town library where she steals a book about Hypnotism.
It’s a really cool which I really enjoyed and now that I’ve thought about it again and refreshed my memory I think I’ll be looking up getting a copy and reading it again. I’ve also got to give the movie a try! But before you see the movie, think about reading the book!
