Made into movie
It seems today that there are very few original screenplays. Often when I go to a movie, I find out it was a book first. So I started to do some research and that research turned into a list. When it was all said and done, I created a list of books with teen appeal that have been made into movies.
Be sure to catch the premiere of the Reel Good Reads booklist. On it you will find some really great titles ...yes these were books before they were movies. There are some old favorites and some new surprises. You can find all of these titles at the library. Place a hold on them through the catalog.
Be the first to read them before everyone finds out!!!!
“Alec heard a whistle—shrill, loud, clear, unlike anything he had ever heard before. He saw a mighty black horse rear on its hind legs, its forelegs striking out into the air. A white scarf was tied across its eyes. The crowd broke and ran.”
Walter Farley first imagined the Black Stallion, a wild creature of blazing speed and mysterious origins, when he was a teenager and high school track star in 1930s. He kept working on the story, sometimes turning parts of it into class assignments at college. After graduation, he began writing for a New York advertising agency, but he still kept working on his horse stories.
