There have been so many great animated films recently that it’s going to get harder for studios to do amazing things. Our standards have changed and certain studios just keep getting better. So it must be tricky coming up with new concepts that offer the same emotional, visual and irrational punch that we’ve become used to. The Bad Guys had the potential to be a lot of fun but did it have enough to be unforgettable? My initial thoughts after seeing the trailer were no but it was still worth taking a look.
This week I’ve unexpectedly finished two books. Two books that I wasn’t intending to read but that I managed to listen to as I was working. I’ve had this for a while but never bothered to read it. I do this a lot with middle-grade fiction. I love the idea of them but I don’t read them. I had bought this after reading and enjoying Katherine Rundell’s The Explorer. This one sounded like an equally fun and charming story. Plus, historical children’s books are becoming a thing for me this month.
