Read in April, 2005

I read this because I heard the movie was coming out and it sounds like a good idea. Now I want to make this movie happen. A wonderful book about storytelling. It's an odd book, with lots of tree talk, and probably not accessible but I think it's a real modern fairy-tale: princess in the tower, foreign prince, subtle darkness.

I have very specific ideas about how I'd want to adapt it to screen, which is always a good thing and maybe I should be happy it never got made. The ideas I'd heard sounded cracked-out.
