Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
by Anne Digby.
Like the previously featured Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade book, this version was also published to coincide with the release of the movie in 1989 although this edition is aimed at slightly older children and is a little bit longer as a result.
Watched with sneaking admiration by the man in the brown hat, Indiana ran along the rail tracks as fast as he could go, clutching the precious cross, until he reached the street where he lived.
The author successfully converts the movie's screenplay making it more attractive to a younger audience although reducing Indiana's age to twelve years old was maybe going just a little too far. Effectively now having Wolfgang Müller on top of the circus train is certainly an interesting image but not exactly convincing. Luckily however, this heavily illustrated book features five different pictures of a much older River.
But of course, when you're twelve, you think you can do anything. You think that you will live forever.
"You lost today, kid, but that doesn't mean you have to like it."
