I have actually heard that he is in meetings for turning the series into a movie.
That'd be cool...would they have to shut the park down to film?

I love this series...sadly I have read that Ridley Pearce stated that there are no plans for a film. Thankfully tho he said that he will be writing spin offs of each of the characters. Now I will say this a film would be awesome, but I think an on-going animated series wld rock better...there is just so much more you can do with an animated....OOOOORRRR...take it old school like Mary Poppins and combine animated and live action. Just sayin...thoughts?

I haven't had a chance to read these. I actually saw the books for the first time in the parks last week and I really wasn't sure if they were straight up elementary school novels or if anyone could read them (and it would appeal to them)... I didn't have time to look up reviews but now I completely wish I had bought them! I only live a few miles from a Barnes and Noble...I wonder if they would have it in stock.

The 1st book Disney after Dark is hard to find. But I managed to get all of em on Amazon. They are amazing...anybody can read them and it just keeps you wanting more. You will enjoy them.

I just read the first one and I have to agree the concept behind the books and the plot is just amazing....However, I think the author could have did a better job describing everything. I took a while for me to distinguish the main characters and I found myself only being able to image a small image of what was happening where as when i read harry potter, percy jackson and the olympians, I could imagine the whole scene. The author also left out important events in the first book.

Overall I give the book an A for plot but a C for writting style/quality
