Poppy Mayberry Blog Tour guest post by Jennie K. Brown




Favorite MG book to movie adaptations.

My favorite middle-grade book to movie adaptation would definitely be Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. The book and movie focus around a girl named Winnie who wanders through the woods one day and finds a boy drinking water from a fountain. The boy takes her to his family … the Tuck family … who explain to her the magical powers of the water – everlasting life. Unfortunately, a man who has been looking for the Tuck family for a long time follows Winnie to the ever-young family and some events occur that will change everyone’s life forever --- however long that may be!

There have been a few adaptations of this movie, but I like the 2002 version with Alexis Bledel the best and Jonathan Jackson. Although there were times the movie strayed from the book, overall this adaptation captured the essence of the book. Not only that, but I grew up loving both Alexis Bledel and Jonathan Jackson, so it didn’t hurt that they were the starring actors.

Poppy Mayberry, The Monday by Jennie K. Brown

Publication Date: September 13, 2016

Publisher: Tantrum Books

 What if your teacher could read your mind just because she was born on a Thursday? Or the kid next to you in class could turn back the clock just because he was a ‘Wednesday”? In the quirky town of Nova, all of this is normal, but one thing is not—Poppy Mayberry. As an almost-eleven-year-old Monday, she should be able to pass notes in class or brush her dog, Pickle, without lifting a finger. But her Monday telekinesis still has some kinks, and that plate of spaghetti she’s passing may just end up on someone’s head. And if that’s not hard enough, practically perfect Ellie Preston is out to get her, and Principal Wible wants to send her to remedial summer school to work on her powers! It’s enough to make a girl want to disappear…if only she were a Friday.
