Keeping the thrill of your favourite stories alive.

When a story’s so good it makes the leap from book-to-film (or sometimes film-to-book), fans get treated to the thrill of discovery all over again. Great adaptations illuminate the stories we love, bring faces to our favourite characters, and soundtracks to remember. Whereas amazing novelisations allow deeper exploration of characters, backstories, motivations and plotlines. Here are some of our favourite book-to-film crossovers.
