      • I can do my own impression of Walken reading the story. 😛 I have actually lost interest, though, after seeing the strangely heavy and adult film made about the book. They added all sorts of sexual and divorce content that might have traumatized some viewers expecting a simple, charming trip through an imaginary jungle with a restless kid in his PJs.
