The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on the Silver Screen . . .

The haunting YA novel, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne has been a favourite read among librarians and Deweys alike since it was published in 2006. The movie is coming out this fall. You can see the trailer here and it looks pretty good. Can the film version of Markus Zusak's equally amazing The Book Thief be far behind?

And for John Boyne fans - he'll have an adult historical novel out next spring. It's called Mutiny on the Bounty and tells the famous story through the eyes of a fourteen year old boy who is serving as Captain Bligh's personal valet on the ill-fated voyage.
