Its a book I have had for a very long time (judging by the fact the inscription inside the cover says 1997!) And I remember reading it many many years ago. But I realise now I didn't fully appreciate the comedy and in some cases depth of the poems. Having read the book from cover to cover I have selected quite a number of poems that have taken my fancy. The first few are long poems only one of which I would try to adapt.
After a few tutorials in weeks past, an idea to create an Attic environment and tell stories from within it seems to be the key feature. I feel more inclined to create this environment and then choose a handful of the shorter poems to animate using the random objects found in the attic. Rather than choosing one of the longer ones.
Its is clear that I need to narrow these poems down further, which I will. However there are two poems I am certain I want to bookend the project. The poem 'A light in the Attic' and 'Batty'. These would help create a sense of closure as the light is turned on at the beginning and with the reading of 'Batty' is switched off in the end. Now to choose the 4/5 poems I wish to animate.
