Question: What exactly do you think of [The Alice Movie]?

So I’ve been reading the Alice Books since I was about 10 (maybe?) I’m 18 now and I finally found Alice Upside Down. At first i almost didn’t watch it because I was afraid of how bad it could be…but my curiosity got the best of me and I watched it. I was pretty surprised. I thought they did a great job with the characters. (Except for liz! what!?) and the boy that played Patrick was adorable. Mrs. Plotkin looked exactly like I imagined her. It has been a while since I read The Agony of Alice but I was pleased with the movie. So my question for you is, What exactly do you think of it? and Did they included you in the making of the film?

PHYLLIS Replied:
Some of the characters were not at all as I had portrayed them, but if you expect that some things will be different, and accept the film on that basis, I think they did a good job. I was able to read the screen play before it became final, and made some suggestions. They took some of my advice, not all of it, but I’m very glad you enjoyed it. I thought Lester was quite funny, though their character was younger than I had imagined. In my books he is seven years older than Alice.
