Adaptation #100: Get Out of Your Box, Trolls

header100Kendyl and Dorin have a million great things to say about the film The Boxtrolls as well as the book it is based on, Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow. The two pull out some fairly intricate metaphors from the stories and for once, don’t lament that the book and movie are very different.
