Video Sunday: The Other Man in Purple

So many good videos to choose from today!  First and foremost, I begin with a very special message from Jon Scieszka.  It seems you still have two days to vote in the Children’s Book Choice Awards and . . . well . . . Jon would really like your kids to do so.  Seriously.

I own that suit!

I also enjoyed this video from Storycorps.  In it, a woman reflects on the bookmobile that changed her life:

Bookmobile

In other news, it’s been a good book trailer season. When I went to Zootopia the other day (and how cool was its Emmett Otter reference?) I got a couple before the show. In this first video I spent the bulk of it trying to figure out if it was an adaptation of the Mac Barnett / Jory John Terrible Two series. It is based on a book, but we just aren’t that lucky:

On the plus side, the new BFG trailer looks pretty darn good:

And there’s a new trailer for A Monster Calls that I really enjoyed.

Finally, for the off-topic video, I actually think you could make a case for this being on-topic.  I mean, have you ever seen a truer to life version of Are You My Mother?

It comes with its own Snort!

    I remember bookmobiles from childhood with great fondness. Does anyone still do that?

    • Elizabeth Bird says:

      Oh yes! Very much so. Not just bookmobiles but mobile hotspots and e-resource vans. But bookmobiles too. Brooklyn Public Library has their own little mini gas station behind the main library just for theirs.

  2. Of course I love the Jon Scieszka video! haha!

    This is a great round-up of movie trailers based on MG books. Thank you!
