Guess who was cast for Pauline? Emma Watson, aka Hermione.

As someone who has translated both the Harry Potter books and "Ballet Shoes"
into Hebrew, this feels like karma to me. (ObDWJ: I also translated "Howl's
Moving Castle"...)

As far as I know it will not be a Hollywood film but a BBC television drama;
the same book was also a miniseries in the 1970s.

At least I shall have my niggling doubts as to the pronunciation of
Petrova (petrov-a?  pe-trove-a?) settled.  Petrova Fossil is possibly
the best name ever.
