Big Nate Flips Out by Lincoln Peirce

Rating: ★★★★★

The all-new graphic novel “BIG NATE: Flips Out” is an extrodinary addition to the Big Nate series. In this book, Nate, Teddy, and Francis join the yearbook commitee and Nate gets assigned to shoot candids. So Francis borrows a teacher’s camera for Nate to use. And when the camera goes missing, Nate and Francis flip OUT. Could a little hypnosis help the problem? Or not? I reccomend this book for Big Nate fans and/or anyone who LOVES graphic novels.

Books to Big Screen (Kinda): Stargirl and Timmy Failure

February 26th, 2020 by

Usually when we share trailers for movies based on books, it makes sense to say “Books to Big Screen” because the films are released in theaters. But fortunately, streaming TV now makes it possible to enjoy some book-to-movie adaptations from the comfort of your couch. So put on your favorite PJs, grab some microwave popcorn, and check out this downsized (but still very exciting) edition of Books to Big Screen (Kinda)

In just a few weeks, Disney+ will release its adaptation of Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. We really love this book and we’ve both read it multiple times — so to be honest, we’re already a bit concerned that the characters and imagery in the trailer don’t match what’s in our imaginations. (Yes, we are two different people with two different brains. But somehow, what’s in the trailer seems off to both of us.) Let’s just hope that the movie ends up doing justice to the original book. You can bet we’ll be glued to our screens and judging it hard-core — much like the students at Mica High judge poor Stargirl. (So maybe we should be less judgy? Well, we have this website. What’s their excuse?)

Check out the trailer for the upcoming Stargirl movie below. It will be available starting March 13th!

If you simply can’t wait until then to get your book-to-movie fix, then you’re in luck: Disney+ has already released an adaptation of Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made by Stephan Pastis. Take a look at the trailer below — and if you’ve already watched the film, then you’re in luck because there are seven books in the series to keep you entertained!

Are you excited for the new Stargirl movie? Have you already watched the Timmy Failure film? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Books to Big Screen: The House with a Clock in Its Walls

September 4th, 2018 by

The other day, I was walking down the street when I spotted an ad for the new movie The House with the Clock in its Wallsbased on the book by John Bellairs.

First, I was like: “What the what? I didn’t know about this!” because how is there a book-to-film adaptation that I wasn’t on top of? And it stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, two actors I love!

Then, I was like: “I gotta get a copy of that book pronto!” because I always like to read the original source material before seeing the movie.

So I got myself the book that very same day, and I was super pleased with myself. But then I watched the trailer, and that threw a big wrench into my plans — because you guys, the movie looks really scary! I mean, I knew it was a mystery involving witches and warlocks, but I didn’t know it would be so creepy. And I do not do well with creepy!

Here, check out the trailer for yourself:

Honestly, I’m not sure I can watch this movie. Seems like it was designed to induce nightmares!

Fortunately, this second movie trailer includes some comedy and whimsy, so maybe the film won’t be a complete creep-fest after all. Take a look:

What do you think? Based on these trailers, do you expect the movie to be a terrifying horror film or a magical adventure? Maybe some of both? And are you planning to see it when it hits theaters on September 21st? Me? I’m still trying to decide if I have the nerve!

— Karen

In addition being nervous about the movie, Karen is also now a bit anxious about reading the book! Can anyone out there tell her how scary the original book is on a scale of 1 to 10 — with 1 being “all rainbows and sunshine, nothing creepy here” and 10 being “OMG, you’ll have to sleep with the lights on for the rest of your life”? Thanks, bye!

Better Nate Than Ever: Book Review

March 12th, 2014 by

better-nate-than-everIf you’re as big a fan of Frozen as Nancy and I are, then you probably belt out “Let It Go” any chance you get (with some “Love Is an Open Door” for good measure). Maybe you even consider yourself a fan of musicals in general now (if you weren’t before).

But if you don’t know every single thing about all of history’s composers and lyricists and you haven’t listened to the original scores of musicals that came out way before you were born and you don’t dream of life on the Great White Way (aka Broadway), well, then you aren’t nearly as big a fan of musicals as Nate, the star of Better Nate Than Ever by Tim Federle.

Unfortunately for Nate, he lives in a small-minded community in Pennsylvania, not in the heart of New York City. Nate is bullied regularly and only has one friend he can count on, Libby.

But thank goodness for Libby, because together they hatch a plan for Nate to sneak away to NYC for just one day in order to audition for a new Broadway musical based on the movie ET.

Turns out getting to New York is a piece of cake compared to what Nate encounters once he actually gets there. His adventures are anxiety-packed, from getting ready to audition, to meeting with a big-time director, to dealing with the competition, to navigating the big city — but despite the stress, it’s all a joy to read, thanks to Nate’s funny and heartfelt voice.

Even if you’re not a super fan of musicals yourself, you’ll still enjoy following Nate’s journey. And you’ll definitely root for Nate in the hopes that as he finds his way in New York, he’ll also find himself.

Have you already ready Better Nate Than Ever or its sequel, Five, Six, Seven, Nate!? Leave a comment with your thoughts. Or tell me your favorite musical!

— Karen

Karen looooooooves many musicals, not just Frozen. Her favorite is Into the Woods, which is about fairy tale characters who come together in one crazy story — kind of like The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer!

Book-to-Big-Screen Winners

February 28th, 2012 by

Monday mornings are always rough, but it was especially hard for me to get out of bed yesterday because I stayed up watching the Oscars on Sunday night. Did you?

My favorite part of the Oscars is always checking out what the celebrities are wearing, but this year I was also paying close attention to all the categories where War Horse and Hugo were nominated, since they’re both based on children’s books. Though neither one picked up the Best Picture award, I was delighted when The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore won for Best Animated Short Film. What what! Book love at the Oscars! Raise the roof! Holla!


Since I have book-to-movie adaptations on the brain, I thought maybe you guys would too. So here’s a round-up of our favorite films based on children’s books, to help you get ready for your next DVD night. Out of ALL our movie reviews on Kidsmomo, these are the ones that got two smileys from us!

How to Train Your Dragon, based on the book by Cressida Cowell:

(And apparently there’s a sequel in the works. Yahoo!)


Ramona and Beezus, based on the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary:


Flipped, based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen:


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, based on the book by Judi and Ron Barrett:

“Shadow” Wins Big in the UK

June 16th, 2011 by

Over 150,000 votes were cast, and now the results are in… Shadow by Michael Morpurgo has just been named kids’ favorite book of the year! WOO HOO! APPLAUSE! CRAZY ANTICS AND CELEBRATION!

What? You’ve never heard of Shadow?

Well, that’s because the voting took place in the United Kingdom, as part of the Red House Children’s Book Award. Every year, kids across the UK nominate their favorite new books for consideration. Then they come back to check out the finalists and put in their votes for the big winner.

And this year, that honor went to Shadow, the story of an Afghan boy (named Aman) and his springer spaniel (named Shadow). When Aman and his mother decide to flee the war in Afghanistan, they find that Shadow plays a larger role in their dangerous journey than they ever could have imagined. Sounds pretty thrilling! But you don’t have to take my word for it, since I haven’t read the book myself — if you want to see what one British kid had to say about the book, check out this review on an English newspaper’s website!

And in case you were wondering, the competing finalists for the 2011 Red House Children’s Book Award were: The Great Hamster Massacre by Katie Davies and Time Train to the Blitz by Sophie McKenzie. The former is a humorous mystery starring two siblings (and their dead hamsters), and the latter is an action-packed adventure set in World War II London — and involving time travel! Seriously, could there be two more different books on the same finalist list?

I guess those British kids are into all kinds of books, just like you guys — as proven in the book reviews you submit here on Kidsmomo. So don’t let them have all the fun! Check out any of the Red House Children’s Book Award finalists, and then send in your own opinions in the comments or through a review!

— Karen

Karen just learned that a friend of hers will be moving to London in the fall. So if you guys don’t mind, she’ll be scheduling a vacation to sip high tea and eat crumpets very soon!

What’s Your Favorite New Book? Nominate It!

October 14th, 2010 by

So, it looks like Nancy and I have decided that it’s not enough that both of us work in children’s publishing and we spend a good chunk of our free time on Kidsmomo — apparently, that’s just not enough kidlit for us, because now we’ve gone and volunteered to be judges in this year’s Cybils Awards.

Never heard of ’em? Don’t worry, we didn’t expect you to. The Cybils are a big deal amongst adults who have blogs about children’s books — people like me and Nancy who are WAY older than you but can’t seem to grow up. (No offense to our fellow Cybils judges. Just sayin’.)

The way it works is that people nominate books that were published within the last year, and then kidlit bloggers from around the web read and score the books, eventually declaring the winners in various categories like Poetry, Graphic Novels, and Fantasy & Science Fiction. All the judges are adults, but the cool part is that ANYONE can nominate!

That’s where you come in. Do you have a favorite new book that was published between October 16, 2009 and October 15, 2010? Then you can nominate it to be judged in this year’s Cybils Awards! But act fast, because the deadline is October 15th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. (Do I sound like a TV commercial or what?)

Just ask your parent to submit the title using this nomination form. (Sorry, you have to get a parent to do it and use their email address. But you can totally use your own name, and I’d encourage you put in your age too, so that everyone can see that the nomination came from a real-honest-to-goodness kid — these books are written for you, after all!)

Before you nominate, be sure to read over these rules:

  • You can only nominate one book in each category. Speaking of which, you guys may not be interested in all the categories. I’d suggest nominating in one of these: Science Fiction & Fantasy, Graphic Novels, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Middle Grade Fiction (which is pretty much anything else you’d read that doesn’t fall into one of those other categories!).
  • You can only nominate books that were published between October 16, 2009 and Octother 15, 2010. I know I already said that, but it’s a no-nonsense rule that you just can’t get around, so I thought I’d repeat it. (If you have trouble figuring out when a book was published, just go to Amazon or Barnes & Noble’s website; they have the publication dates for most books.)
  • You can’t nominate books that were written entirely in a language other than English. (But you can totes nominate a book written in English and another language, like a book written in both English and Spanish.)
  • PLEASE nominate each book only once. As long as you nominate it, it will be included in the contest, I promise.
  • Your parent must be the one to submit the nomination for you, using their email address. You’re not allowed to submit it yourself. (Yeah, yeah, I know this one is also a repeat. I’m just trying to stay out of trouble here.)
  • Nominations are due before October 15th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. So, hurry hurry hurry!
  • After you nominate a book, you have to hop around in your living room wearing a pink tutu. JUST KIDDING! I just wanted to see if you were paying attention.

So, I think that just about covers it! Well, how about I throw in the link to the nomination form again, for good measure. Here it is: CYBILS NOMINATION FORM! Don’t forget, nominations are due before 11:59 p.m. ET this Friday (10/15)!

— Karen

There are lots of nominated books that Karen really wants to read, but she’s waiting to see if they make it past the first round because Karen is a Round 2 judge. Some might call that laziness, but Karen prefers to think of it as efficiency.
