Gathered Nettles: Two Sisters Obsessing over YA Lit

While perusing the internet this week, I came across a plethora of exciting goings-on in the world of children’s literature, fantasy, and books in general. Overwhelmed by the wealth of content, the only way I could cope with the awesome was to share it all with you!

From the Atlantic:

An article about the term YA- what that label means, when it came about, and what purpose it serves.

From BBC News:

News that descendants of J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Dickens are collaborating on two fantasy novels for children.

A miniature book from Queen Mary’s dollhouse, written in 1922 about a fairy who travels to London, will be published in full scale.


From Letters of Note:

A copy of a letter J.R.R. Tolkien wrote to a German publishing house in response to their request for proof of his Aryan descent.

A copy of a letter written by Maurice Sendak’s…

A lovely film. Thanks to The Warden’s Walk for reminding of it. xx

The Warden's Walk

Title:The Secret of Kells (2010) IMDb
Director: Tomm Moore (yes, two M’s)
Voice Actors: Evan McGuire, Christen Mooney, Brendan Gleeson, Mick Lally
Score Composer: Bruno Coulais
Length: 75 minutes
Rating (US): No MPAA rating; suitable for older children, but beware of a few very intense, scary sequences, including an implied slaughter of village folk
Spoiler-free Synopsis: In the Irish monastic community at Kells, young Brendan dreams of becoming a master illuminator, but is frustrated by his Abbot’s obsession with fortifying against the Vikings over book-keeping. Brendan’s hopes are raised when a kooky old monk (and master illuminator!) arrives in Kells with a beautiful and unfinished Bible. In order to help with the book and learn illumination, Brendan must venture outside the walls of Kells, where he meets Aisling, the Fair Folk spirit of the forest. Unfortunately, the Vikings aren’t far behind…
Reason for Watching: It was this movie’s Oscar…

     After throwing myself enthusiastically (if rather haphazardly) into the deep-end of the Blogpool I am thrilled to find myself swimming… without arm-bands!

     Few Fairy Tales are as dark and multifaceted as Little Red’s.

     Angela Carter wrote the screenplay for Neil Jordan’s lush and evocative adaptation of Carter’s own collected short writings and radio plays.

     This wonderful fan trailer for The Company of Wolves is by the talented Hedge Labyrinth with music from the Requiem For A Dream soundtrack.

     Thank heaven for little girls, they grow up in the most peculiar ways …
