Mr. Popper’s Penguins … to become a movie

Remember Mr. Popper’s Penguins? According to Variety (via Cynopsis Kids), Fox has optioned the film rights to Mr. Popper’s Penguins (originally published in 1939). Sean Anders and John Morris are writing the screenplay.

Another children’s book has also just been optioned–author/illustrator Chris Gall’s picture book Dinotrux. The book is being developed as a CGI-animated film.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
