Book Trailer Thursday: Hope Is a Ferris Wheel
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The Booklist review of Robin Herrera’s Hope Is a Ferris Wheel (Abrams/Amulet) touts the debut novel’s delightful narrator and “unique supporting cast.” Here they are adorably animated in the book’s trailer, which features BTT’s first trailer (home) within a trailer (book).
