Only two months until Halloween so it seemed appropriate to take in a movie to celebrate!The plus side to going to see ParaNorman was that we had bought the novelization and it got my twelve year old boy to read, a feat in itself!(If it wasn't read we couldn't go. I know-mean Mom!)
  I'm not the best to give a review, as I am just so thrilled to get to the theatre at all, but we did enjoy Paranorman. This dark, animated movie (with frightening scenes) is not going to be one for most younger children.It's from LAIKA, the makers of Coraline, which I think I liked a bit more than this one. That being said, Zombies aren't really my thing, although I did warm up to the undead from Blithe Hollow in the end.  I also got a couple of  songs to add to my Youtube playlist for Halloween!
 I hope you get a chance to enjoy a little spookiness soon!
