* AngstWhatAngst: Unlike in the book, where only the protagonist managed to keep a cool head upon first realizing that hes been turned into a mouse (Bruno had a minor freak out), both Luke and Bruno seem to take being turned into mice in stride, Luke because hes now more determined than ever to stop the witches, and Bruno because hes more concerned about how his parents will react, particularly his mother, whos terrified of mice.

** The book explicitly mentions in the beginning that there is at least one variety of all-male demon out there. What normally happens to your prospects when one of your biggest competitors is removed?
