Do you read the book before you watch the movie? Or do you watch the movie and forget the book even existed? I’m always excited when I find a book on the shelves that was made into a movie. Shocked, I think, “Whoa, I didn’t know that was a book!” Here are some little known books that made it to the big screen.

In the book “Shrek!” by William Steig, Shrek can breathe fire and blow smoke out of his ears, he is uglier than his mother and father put together, and if any snakes are dumb enough to bite him they get convulsions and die. As the book goes on, Shrek meets a witch who tells his fortune: He’ll meet a donkey and ride him to a castle so he can marry the princess. In the movie, “Shrek,” a Dreamworks Animation production, the ogre lives in a swamp, makes candles from ear wax, and farts to catch fish. Shrek meets a talking donkey and they embark on a quest to get his swamp back when other fairytale creatures encroach.
