Monster Blood Tattoo Goes to the Movies

News is just in from movie-land concerning a particular Australian young adult novel that I enjoyed so much last year: "Jim Henson Co. is launching development on a trio of literary properties -- The Boggart by novelist Susan Cooper ("The Dark is Rising"), The Doubtful Guest by Edward Gorey and the fantasy adventure trilogy Monster Blood Tattoo by D.M. Cornish..."Monster Blood Tattoo" is a series of three books, Foundling, Lamplighter and a third untitled novel, set in the world of the Half Continent, a magical Victorian realm where an orphaned boy embarks on a perilous quest to become an apprentice to a line of monster bounty hunters. No writer or director is attached; Henson Co. hasn't decided how many features it will adapt from the trilogy."
