Twitterville Talk #17

Here's the latest and greatest picks from some of those I follow on Twitter.  Enjoy.

 The tweets from Children's Bookshelf at Publishers Weekly that I am highlighting are:

Gorgeous Grimm:  130 Years of Brothers Grimm Visual Legacy is a review written by Maria Popova of The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, edited by Noel Daniel.  This is a compilation of the illustrations from the 27 most favorite stories.  This gives readers a glimpse of some of the beautiful artwork used to portray these stories.

'Percy Jackson' Author Planning Book on Norse Gods headliner written by Hillel Italie reveals that Rick Riordan has signed with Disney Publishing Worldwide to create at least three books.  I can't wait for that.

Film studio Lionsgate Lands Chaos Walking award winning books written by Patrick Ness.  This is a fantastic article about the books, Patrick Ness and the filmmakers plans for production.

The most popular article on the Publishers Weekly site currently is YA Comes of Age written by Sue Corbett.  Corbett offers up thoughtful insights.

In the spring of 2012 an exhibition will be open to the public, for a fee of course, to see sets, costumes, props and effects from the Harry Potter films at Leavesden studios near Watford, UK.  Beam me across the pond, Scotty!

It seems that 'Marcel the Shell with Shoes On' is back with a children's book.  In an article written by Stephen Lee we get the complete scoop and a video preview to boot, er I mean shoe.

Beverly Wrigglesworth of School Library Journal has written: Singing Their Hearts Out: Music for young kids has come a long, long way. Here’s our guide to today’s top albums.

Brian Selznick Takes a Twitter Question; the results are posted by Kathy Ishizuka.  View the Vimeo video.

Johnny Depp is set to star as Dr. Seuss in a live action movie.  Now this I have to see.
