Ideas for a display – questions you can ask:
- A lot of books have their film rights bought but are never made into films – which books do you think should be made into films?
- Some films have names that do not match the books – can you match them up (Q&A/Slumdog Millionaire, Madame Doubtfire/Mrs Doubtfire, The Sheep Pig/Babe, Homeward Bound/The Incredible Journey)
- Which is better – the film or the book?
- Which films did not stay true to the book they were based on?
- Did you know these films were based on books? (BuzzFeed provides a list here – not all YA)
