I really love the book on the right, so I really don’t understand why the book on the left exists and also why Tom Hanks is narrating its adaptation on National Geographic.
There’s a great moment at the beginning of Joe Dante’s “The ‘burbs” when Tom Hanks is showing off some new tools to his neighbor.
After complimenting the comprehensive set and their shiny red housing, the neighbor asks, “You gonna build something with those?”
Tom Hanks nods, shuts the case, and proudly says, “I think so.”
Tom Hanks by way of Wallace Shawn.
