Video Sunday: April Fool’s Day Edition

ChloeLionVid

And by “edition” I mean that my April Fool’s joke of the day is that I’m not doing anything that has even the slightest connection to April Fool’s Day.  Surprise!  Don’t worry.  You’ll see plenty of stuff around the web to fool you ah-plenty.  Remember the day. Now sit back for a treat. Bloody ‘ell.  […]

Video Sunday: The Quibbling Gem

ThreeNinjaPigs

It is a well-established fact that a new Dan Santat book trailer is a cause for celebration.  I hadn’t heard of this one before, so this makes for a good introduction.  Could be a good pairing with John Rocco’s Wolf! Wolf! It also makes me wonder why there aren’t more fairytale ninja mash-ups out there.  […]

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.  […]

A Fuse #8 Production: Video Nostalgia

HappyDance

Folks, it has occurred to me that while I love this blog to pieces, I spend an awful lot of my waking hours here.  Time to start instituting a couple ground rules.  I’m still going to blog every day, but some posts are going to have to be a bit less in-depth than others. Which […]

Video Sunday: Hey, you like Turkish Delight as much as I do

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 […]

Video Sunday: “Look, we have no time for this aimless parade of wrong hats.”

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 […]

Video Sunday: Better better better whooo!

spork

You know, I was all set to begin with the Harry Potter trailer this morning, but after seeing Kyo Maclear’s original Bob Dylan inspired book trailer for a picture book I really love (Spork) it was clear who the first video of today should really be.  Big time thanks to Naseem Hrab for the link! […]

Video Sunday: App Humor

Picture 1

You gasped over the Month at the Museum video by my buddy Davin.  You raved over the Month at the Museum video by YA author James Kennedy.  Now one of our own has entered the fray.  Yes!  Tis blogger extraordinaire Leila Roy coming to you via bookshelves of doom.  She tosses her hat into the […]
