Read any Good Films Lately?

The Academy Awards took place yesterday. To celebrate I put together a display based on novels (mostly for children and young people) that have been adapted for film and television.

The centrepiece of my display is my Reading Oscar:

I used my photocopier to enlarge him to eye-catching size and placed my version of the Hipster Kitty next to him:
