Video Sunday: “Everyone agreed he was right to kill the publisher . . .”

Chloe&Lion

Yep.  Your eyes do no deceive you.  You are looking at The World Premier of the book trailer for Mac Barnett and Adam Rex’s latest, greatest (yes, greatest) picture book collaboration.  For one day and one day only I get to be the first person to show this little vid.  Needless to say, I’m thrilled.  [...]

SendakPilobolus

Yesterday we had a fabulous Children’s Literary Salon at the library with Jules Feiffer, Laurie Keller, Nick Bruel, and Dave Roman.  Afterwards we swapped stories and someone started to tell me that once Maurice Sendak paired with the Pilobolus Dance Theater for a theatrical presentation.  And since this is the 21st -century I was able [...]

JaneGoodall

Oh, wow.  Just . . . wow.  Some of you may already be aware of the Boogie Woogie blog, run by author/illustrator Aaron Zenz and his three kids.  The fact that it may be the best blog out there in which kids participate in the discussion of children’s literature is evidenced by nothing so much [...]

DomeofDoom

I guess the big news this week involves the Trailee Awards coming via School Library Journal.  The first major award to be offered to a book trailer for a children’s or YA book, the nominees are in and the voting (which you may participate in) will continue until October 22nd.  A couple folks have asked [...]
