Go behind the scenes of your favourite movies

You might have been lucky enough to go to the movies in the school holidays.  There was plenty to choose from, including Brave and The Amazing Spiderman.  We’ve just got two cool new books in the library that take you behind the scenes of these movies and tell you more about the characters.

Brave: The Essential Guide gives you extra information about the characters in the movie and the places it was set.  You can take the grand tour of Castle DunBroch, learn Merida’s likes and dislikes, find out about the clans, learn some top tips for archery and swordplay, and read more about the story of the movie.  There are heaps of pictures from the movie, some of the best quotes from the characters, and fact boxes with extra information about the main characters.  I really like the ‘Who Suits Merida?’ section where the different clans say why Merida should choose them.

Spiderman: Inside the world of your friendly neighborhood hero contains everything you ever wanted to know about Spidey.  This book is chock full of pictures of Spiderman, from his very first appearance through to his latest reincarnation.  You can learn all about his costume, the man behind the mask, Peter Parker, his friends and family, his love interests, his enemies, and the main events in his life.  If you want to learn more about Spidey’s latest nemesis, Lizard, or past villans, like Doctor Octopus and Sandman, you can find it all in this book.  Did you know that there have been hundreds of different artists who have brought Spiderman to life over the years?
