Two More Croods Books Up For Pre-Order
Chris Sanders collectors and Croods completists may want to start construction on that Beauty & the Beast-sized home library now. Two new books have been added to the film's ever-growing tie-in market, and we're still seven months away from the picture's release!
First up is Reader's Digest's Croods Super Search: Picture Puzzles, Mazes and More. It's a pretty self-explanatory collection of time-killers. At 96 pages, it oughta keep the iPhone/iPad/3DS-deprived child in your family occupied for the hour or two it takes to buggy from Amish Country to the Farmer's Market. The release date is Feb. 13, 2013.
More intriguing (although a helluva lot skimpier) is Readers Digest's other Croods-related cash-in: The Croods Mix & Match. Clocking in at a scant 12 pages(!), this glorified brochure boasts full page, full color pictures of the critters from The Croods. While the "point" of the book is to let kids' indulge their inner-Frankensteins, combining the head of one creature with the legs of another, I can totally see non-vivisectionists enjoying it, too. I mean, who DOESN'T love them some Chris Sanders cuteness? Even in the form of a madman's medical journal? The release date for this one is Feb. 5, 2013.
