"The Very Hungry Caterpillar." It either could be a charming children's movie, or the caterpillar could be made into a giant human-eating caterpillar and it could be a bloody, campy horror.

"The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junkfood" is one of my favorite children's books. Is Wes Anderson busy? R.I.P. Jan Berenstain.

"Miss Nelson Is Missing" and "Miss Nelson Is Back." They are two of my favorite books from childhood. I loved Miss Nelson's alter ego of Viola Swamp!

"Amelia Bedelia." She could rival any Will Ferrell character.
