Arthur and the Minimoys

Luc Besson, director and producer, has written a book for children entitled Arthur and the Minimoys. Arthur and his Grandmother are about to be evicted from their farmhouse unless they can come up with the money due for back taxes. Arthur finds out that his Grandfather, who disappeared years ago, hid jewels somewhere in the yard. He is determined to save their house, find his Grandfather and the treasure. Arthur encounters a miniature race of people from Africa who will help him on his quest. And so the adventure begins. Although children who enjoy fantasy stories might like this book, I felt as if I was reading a movie script. Surprise,surprise! This book has already been turned into a movie- Arthur and the Invisibles. Xochiquetzal
