Book Trailer Thursday: Year of the Jungle
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

In the reading world, we’re no strangers to the heart-racing, fictional fear and danger in Suzanne Collins’ dystopic Hunger Games series. But Collins explores fear of a different sort in her autobiographical picture book Year of the Jungle, out just this week. Collins presents her memories of the year her father was deployed to Vietnam, […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Fortunately, the Milk
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

He’s. Back. Neil Gaiman has a new picture book that answers hard-hitting questions, like: Will evil aliens redecorate by replacing all Earth’s mountains with throw cushions? And, if so, what will happen to Australier? Fortunately, the Milk tackles all this and more, with a “go-for-broke dairy deus ex machina” to boot. “Children will devour this […]

Book Trailer Thursday: The Dark Between
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

No, you’re not still wearing your sunglasses–this is just one dark book trailer. Appropriately dark, that is, for Sonja Gensler’s latest, The Dark Between, which explores early-twentieth-century psychic research and spirit photograhy in Cambridge’s seedy underbelly. Historical fiction incorporating paranormal and romantic elements? I see a long request list.

Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Wednesday, August 28th will mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the annual March on Washington takes places this weekend.

Ono? No, “Oh no!” Monkey Ono got left behind on Beach Day. Will he make it, resourceful little monkey that he is?

Book Trailer Thursday: Boxers & Saints
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Breaking a complex story into two–a bloody conflict told via young protagonists on its opposing sides–and then putting it back together for a one-minute teaser couldn’t have been easy, but you wouldn’t know it from today’s BTT. The trailer for Printz winner Gene Yuen Lang’s simultaneously released companion graphic novels Boxers and Saints is simple […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Rainstack!
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Today’s trailer is labeled REJECTED, but I did us all a favor and un-jected it for this fine blog. Thursday is always a good day to learn about respect, manners, and the effects of name-calling.

Book Trailer Thursday: Shut Up, You’re Welcome
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Today’s BTT gives a little taste of Annie Choi’s Shut Up, You’re Welcome. Choi, who our reviewer Patty Wetli says “has only just begun to scratch the surface of her talent,” and I might share a first name, but I come nowhere near sharing her profound feelings about musical theater. Let her explain: “If a […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Bully
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The trailer for Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s Bully, out this August, is a lot like the book itself: “visually and verbally pared down to essentials, making it accessible to a wide age range.” Be a friend, not a bully!

Book Trailer Thursday: & Sons
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Before you wrack your brain for the title of your favorite A.N. Dyer novel, or any A.N. Dyer novel for that matter, I’ll save you the anguish (and embarrassment): he’s not real. He’s the reclusive writer at the center of David Gilbert’s & Sons, and all of these people–Brooke Shields most emotionally–have something to say […]
