It's another themed week for Madeit's front page and this time it's movies. I have to admit movies are not my forte. I rarely watch them, and the last time I went to the cinema was for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (Yes, I'm another Harry Potter tragic!). I think that was around a year and a half ago...
Actually, apart from HP, the last three movies I've seen on the big screen were rated PG. Yep, kids movies. If there's any genre I know, that's be the one. It's a side effect of having children, I think! My personal fave is Shrek. I've never seen a kids movie with so many adult in-jokes. We laugh harder than the kidlets! Then there's Toy Story, Ice Age, Madagascar, Finding Nemo, Brave, Astro Boy, Rio, Cars, Monsters Inc, Tangled, Happy Feet and many more (plus their sequels and spin-offs) that I pretty much know word for word. Only two can make me cry (can you guess?) and only one can do it without any words: Up.
So here's my picks for Up

The Enchanted Wood

It's a Book Title themed week over at Madeit and I'm joining in the fun with one of my own childhood favourites. Who doesn't love the Faraway Tree and all it's it's quirky inhabitants? And all those crazy worlds at the top of the tree? For that matter, who doesn't love all of Enid Blyton's sweetly old-fashioned characters?
