The Time Thief ? now for the movie

TIME WILL TELL: Gary Woodfield, with Ridgelands Primary School students, wants to turn his book into a movie. Picture by AMY GLASS. ag11/405/1ROCKHAMPTON author Gary Woodfield wants to turn his book, The Time Thief, into the latest Hollywood blockbuster for kids. Mr Woodfield visited Ridgelands Primary School last week to give students a glimpse of his book. The children's book is the first part of a trilogy, combining text, illustration and a game. It's aimed at the eight to 10-year-old age group and has been a hit in the US. Mr Woodfield said he was hoping to cash in on its success by making it into a movie or franchise: "We've put together a marketing package. I'll know in July or August if it's been successful and just who will have the film rights.'' Mr Woodfield said Ridgelands Primary was the first Australian school to see the book. The book revolves around the great city of Timefest, which is inhabited by Timelings. As scientists, the Timelings spend their daily lives trying to solve the puzzle of why time exists until one discovers time-travel and endangers their world. r The Time Thief is available online at: www.nightingalepress.com or www.bookworm.com.au
