Savvy at the Movies!

I haven't read Ingrid Law's Savvy yet, but I've heard enough to be pretty excited by the news that Walden Media is turning it into a movie due out in 2010.

I found that news in the first paragraph of a lengthy article about how Walden is working closely enough with HarperCollins to get their own imprint, Walden Pond Press. Naturally, anything that goes through WPP has the potential to become a Walden flick.

Ordinarily you'd get a lot of wailing from me about Hollywood encroaching on the publishing industry. But I like Walden's adaptations, which are generally well-written and close to the book. So I'll see how this turns out.
