"Varmints" - The Movie

Last year (when I was still reviewing picture books regularly on Mondays!), I sang the praises of Varmints by Helen Ward and Marc Craste. If you missed it but love strange but awe-inspiring works of art made into kids stories, read it.
I said it looked like an animation put into paper. So, it was only a matter of time till Varmints was going to be made into a film. I thought it would look great, but this little trailer exceeded all my high expectations. I'd love to watch the whole movie!

Thanks to the Literary Resources blog for bringing this to my attention!

Hi Valentina, I enjoyed this book too and found out about the movie. Then I saw the clip and found out you can see the whole movie, about 20 minutes through a download. I wrote about it on my blog. You can see the details here:

Just thought you'd like to know. I appreciate your reviews!

Anyway, hi Valentina! Nice to know that there are someone out there reading the same book as me! The page attracted the most was the page when he moved his most important thing to a safer place! So touching! haha!
I saw that trailer in youtube as well...but do you know whether there is actually a movie? So want to watch it!
I hope you enjoy the book as well! Nice meeting you and this is my blog
