See now, this is what I get for waiting when I see a good video. I’ve been doing my Video Sundays a little less frequently since I like to do them when the content is primo. The flipside is that sometimes I get scooped. Such is the case with today’s video. It is a delight and I have watched it multiple times, but it’s not as new as it once was. No matter. You will enjoy it thoroughly, I think. Thanks to Jon Scieszka and, by extension, Lisa Brown for the link.
Next up, a triple threat. He writes books like Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities (which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed). He blogs at Mike Jung’s Little Bloggy Wog. But the kicker? He sings. And goldurnit . . . he’s good.
Brother Iz step aside. I may have to rework my children’s book boy band roster around to include him. Dude has pipes.
Speaking of music, I am of the opinion that a catchy score can make or break a book trailer. Example A: As the Crow Flies by Sheila Keenan and Kevin Duggan. Catchy as all get out.
And where would this little trailer for the oh-so Canadian Little Jack Horner LIVE from the Corner be without its catchy tunes? Only author Helaine Becker and illustrator Mike Boldt know for sure.
In other news, J.K. Rowling was in town. Care to watch her chatter? Here’s the uncut interview with Jon Stewart in all it Daily Showy glory.
Finally, our off-topic video comes to us from good man Mike Lewis. As he says, it’s the reactions that make this one a classic.
