A parents' guide to select new movies:
Rating: PG for fantasy adventure action, some scary moments and brief language.
What it's about: A girl and her dad flee literary villains because when Dad reads a story aloud, books come alive.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Fantasy, monsters, adventure, special effects.
Good lessons/bad lessons: The written word is a powerful thing.
Violence: Threats, fisticuffs, guns wielded with menace.
Language: A single D-word.
Sex: Nary a hint.
Parents' advisory: Entirely too wordy and scary for the very young; fine for 10 and older.
