We have all heard of movies being made from storybooks! For example, we have all heard of the Harry Potter series, Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda and so many more.

But did you know that there are also books that are made from movies? They are called ‘Junior Novelisations’ because the movies are made into chapter books. Reading them is a lot of fun.

I love watching animation movies by Disney and Illumination. When you read a novelization of a movie, it feels like you are reading a movie. They are really funny, and the dialogues in the chapters are exactly what we see in the movie.

What I enjoy about these novels is that the movie finishes in two hours, but when you read the book, you can enjoy the story for a longer time. You can also read it over and over again.

The novelisations that I have read include Trolls, Moana, The Grinch and most recently, Pets as well as Frozen. They were all amazing to read.

I look forward to reading more junior novelisations. Of course, I’ll be reading them after watching the movies!
