Ella Enchanted

Ella Enchanted was written by Gail Carson Levine in 1997. In 1998 It was awarded the Newbery Honor. In 2004 the beloved novel was turned into a movie starring Anne Hathaway. When it comes to comparing the two it very easy for me to say that the Book wins hands down. I have read the book many times, and love it every time I read it. I was very excited when they decided to make it a movie but then I was let down when it came out. While the basic plot was the same, the overall feelings of the book were not portrayed. I think that the large issue came because the movie came out so much later than the book. The book was a classic when the movie was made, and it is hard to replicate a classic. I would recommend reading the book, because there is much more detail.
