The Ents and the Pequeninos
For one horrible moment there I thought you said The Ents and the Penguins
heh, anyways, I'm gonna keep my eyes out for Orson Scott Card stuff now just for the sheer hell of it.

I'm glad to hear it's worth seeing from another fan, as I was worried it might be another case of Hollywood ruining a once great comic.
Ah, I think everyone was worried about that...I mean, just look what Hollywood did to Streetfighter and the Justice League of America, boy, did that film suck!!
Acttualy I'll admit that the He-Man Movie they did was pretty cool...and so was Mortal Kombat. But Streetfighter really was naff!

They should bring back Thudercats
I agree 'bout the Thundercats! After my He-man phase in the early 80's Thundercats and The Transformers were IT for me. Of course, now that I'm grown, the voice acting on Thundercats is laughingly bad. I caught an ep on the cartoon network a couple months ago, and although it was very nostalgic, I couldn't help but roll my eyes. Snarf-snarf...

Anyway, go out there and get yourself some books by Card and let me know if you agree. All the books that deal with Ender's saga are as follows: Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Children of the Mind, Ender's Shadow, and Shadow of the Hegemon. Ender's Shadow and Shadow of the Hegemon are retellings of the original story Ender's Game from the point of view of two other characters (the first by Bean, Ender's "right hand man" and the second by Ender's sadistic brother Peter) This is a difficult thing to do without merely recapping the original. However, Card pulls this off beautifully and the last two stories become independent stories. The first 4 books though are sequential and the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th books involve the Entlike Pequeninos.
I am a big Orson Scott Card fan. Ender's Game was probably the most emotional rollercoaster of a book (apart from Tolkien) that I have ever read.
I have the latest one to read soon - Shadow Puppets.
Were the Pequeninos Entlike, apart from the tree thing? Not sure about that.
Exit stage left..... (thunk)
