'Where the Wild Things Are' Fuzzy Novelization

Generation-X (and beyond) author Dave Eggers -
who is most well-known for the memoir of his MTV-courting days A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - co-wrote the screenplay to Spike Jonze's adaptation of the children's book Where the Wild Things Are.

In addition, Entertainment Weekly says, "Eggers’ McSweeney’s imprint also announced plans to publish the novelization, titled The Wild Things, in a special $28 faux-fur-covered edition in October."

Hmm. Novelization. At least it's of a screenplay by the actual author of said screenplay. Usually novelizations are tantamount to having a second grader take notes during a screening of the film and then publishing it for gullible fanboys desperate enough to read it and children who don't know better.
