Well, it looks like Water for Elephants promo might heat up ‘very soon’. While we wait…
This picture was yelling at me. “Look at the red! The scarlet with gold trim!” These words sounded so happily familiar that I picked up Water for Elephants for the *whispers a surprisingly large number*th time. So, how about a look back at the book, when Jacob Jankowski sees, for the first time, the circus spectacle he’d accidentally hopped upon?

In the morning light I see what I couldn’t last night – the wagons are painted scarlet with gold trim and sunburst wheels, each emblazoned with the name BENZINI BROS MOST SPECATACULAR SHOW ON EARTH. As soon as the wagons are hitched to teams, the Percherons lean into their harnesses and drag their heavy loads across the field.
The attention to detail in this movie is going to blow me away. Ok, time to spill. I’m itching to get the new Water for Elephants edition with the movie tie-in cover. Can’t believe I have to wait until March 2011. That will bring me to…coughtthreecopiescough. How about you?
