Books On Film | Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 came out yesterday. It's a sequel to the animated film Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs (2009). Both are adaptations of the Judi Barrett's classic children's picture book of the same name

The movie is very enjoyable, but it is more more inspired by, than based on, the book. The movie keeps the central idea of food falling from the sky, but most of the rest of the plot and characters were created whole-clothed.

If you enjoy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs check out Judi Barrett's other picture books, which include Never Take A Shark to the Dentist (and other things not to do), Old MacDonald Had An Apartment, Pickles to Pittsburg, and Pickle's Have Pimples
