The Parents' Guide To Kids' Movies by Jo Berry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


You would have preferred he watched The Railway Children or The Wizard of Oz; you had consented to Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, but when your young son returns from his first sleepover providing a blow-by-blow account of Kill Bill and Kill Bill 2, which he's seen on DVD, your problems are only just beginning. Part of Jo Berry's guide to kids' movies is aimed at the concerned parent and provides a sensitive guide to the content of hundreds of kids' films, but the book mainly operates as a source for alternatives: for the parent faced with the long summer holidays and the thirty-third viewing of The Lion King, maybe it's time to delve back through a long line of Disney classics, check out the original Alice in Wonderland adaptation from 1951 or investigate Ray Harryhausen's Dynarama (stop-motion) special effects in the 1974 Golden Voyage of Sinbad. Helpfully arranged in self-explanatory chapters - including Family Films, Seasonal Movies, Fairytales and Legends, Science Fiction and Comic Book Adaptations, among others - The Parents' Guide to Kids Movies is the first comprehensive guide to children's film. Written with passion and insight, Jo Berry has produced an informative, entertaining and balanced aid for the modern-day parent drowning in a sea of DVD releases.
