Book based - children's.

Summary
A collection of DVDs featuring films based on children's novels, all gathered into one "binge box" for a spectacular movie night. Charlotte's web: Fern is one of only two living beings who sees that Wilbur is a special animal as she raises him, the runt of the litter, into a terrific and radiant pig. As Wilbur moves into a new barn, he begins a second profound friendship with the most unlikely of creatures, a spider named Charlotte, and their bond inspires the animals around them to come together as a family. Curious George: When The Man In The Yellow Hat befriends Curious George in the jungle, they set off on a non-stop, fun-filled adventure through the wonders of the big city toward the warmth of true friendship. Ferdinand: After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Lemony Snicket's A series of unfortunate events: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are taken in by a series of oddball relatives and others after their wealthy parents are killed in a fire. The first to take them in is the dastardly and cunning Count Olaf, who is only interested in their inheritance. Mr. Popper's penguins: Mr. Popper's Penguins is the story of a boy whose explorer father loves him but neglects him in favor of his career. Once the boy grows to sharkish real-estate wheeler-dealer manhood in NYC, he does the same thing to his wife, daughter, and son. Promised a partner position in his real-estate firm, he woos a reluctant seller to part with the Tavern on the Green. Life is going fine until his dad's final gift to him arrives. Then Mr. Popper's life changes radically, because the gift is penguins--live, breathing, fish-loving penguins. Mr. Popper, at first vexed and then beguiled by the creatures, tries to deal with them, his job, his children, his ex-wife, a nosy neighbor, an officious zoo guy, and the state of his soul. Where the wild things are: Max has an active imagination, who will throw a fit if others don't go along with what he wants. Following an incident with his sister Claire and her friends, Max throws a tantrum when his mother pays more attention to her boyfriend than to him - runs away from home. Wearing his wolf costume at the time, Max not only runs away physically, but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world, an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including Carol who has the same temperament as Max. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems.
