More books for young people adapted to film?

In the wake of the Harry Potter movies, there seems to be an increase of getting books for young people to be adapted for screen these days, according to Swedish newspaper Metro. Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will premiere in March next year, in Sweden, along with The mortal ­instruments by Cassandra Clare.



More books for young people to be film is Beautiful creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohls , together with Maximum ride: Angel experiment by James Pattersson. Successful screen versions that we can recommend is, of course, this year’s ALMA recipient Shaun Tan’s Lost Thing, and Spike Jonze’s film adaption of 2003 ALMA recipient Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are.
