After that, Milo and Teddy get into an argument about Teddys father being a loony. Teddy is very defensive and they go back and forth about it. “your mother blows dead rats!, and if you call my dad a loony again, I’ll fucking kill you, you cocksucker!” (King 344). This line and the whole scene are in the film as well. The only difference is that the dog in the book was a mongrel dog and in the film it was a golden retriever.

Another reason this novel is well written is because it’s comedic. It’s funny and entertaining. Not everything in this novel is a joke, but the way the main character, Violet, explains her thoughts and thinks about everyday happenings is very entertaining and could probably make lots of people chuckle. Books with a hint of comedy are slightly hard to come by. It’s easy to find a cheesy book that is so cheesy it isn’t even funny and books that are so serious that you could read the entire novel cover to cover without a single facial expression.
But can a brave little mouse, armed with only a threading needle as a sword, conquer a dungeon full of rats and a greedy servant girl? Find out in Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning novel, The Tale of Despereaux. The Tale of Despereaux has all the makings of a modern fairy tale. It’s the traditional story of a princess and a brave knight, but with a very unlikely hero. The novel is separated into four sections that blend together perfectly, each section giving history on Despereaux, the evil rat, Roscuro, and the near-deaf servant girl, Mig.
It is a very simple story book about two characters names Rabbit and Hen. The first half of the story shows Rabbit getting ready, on her journey and how she meets her friend, Hen. The second half of the story is both Rabbit and Hen together, helping each other out in preparation for the party that happens at the end. Unlike the first number book One, two, buckle my shoe has a rhyming pattern to it. Perkins believes that by putting text into rhythm children are immediately becoming familiar with language (2008) and I believe that this makes it more fun for the children as they are able to join in and will remember how to count to twenty by remembering a simple rhyme.
In the beginning it is revealed that an old ugly witch has placed a spell on the bakers line so that they wouldn’t be able to have a kid. But the witch says that the curse can be lifted if the bakers can find the four ingredients that the witch needs for a special potion. Which sounds very similar to the Wizard Of Oz when the wizard asks Dorothy and the rest of the group in order to get what they wished from the wizard they needed to go out and find the witch and proceed to kill her, which they eventually did. All of the characters begin their journey onto getting what they have been wishing for. Once the witch finally gets all her items that she needed in three days time from the baker and his wife she lifts the curse and then proceeds to make the potion and she becomes young and beautiful again.
Of course, all books are more descriptive. What I liked about the movie is that they actually showed the dream Pony boy had and they also showed Dally robbing the grocery store; something the book doesn't tell. Both the book and the movie are great, and you should watch it, but the book is better. In conclusion as you can tell there are many differences, but there are also many things that are alike between the book and the movie. I enjoyed both the book and the movie, but personally I think the book was better, because the movie left some of the things out that the book had in it.
