Trailer Tuesday! Pete the Cat Saves Christmas by Eric Litwin

25 Sep

Anyone who follows this blog (or knows me even slightly) knows how much I LOVE Pete the Cat. LOVE. So much so that I had him tattooed on my arm (yes, really!). So I’m excited to share the book trailer for the new Pete story: Pete the Cat Saves Christmas! Now, generally, I’m not a big fan of Christmas tie-in books. They always feel forced – as if the publisher said to the author one day: “we need you to write a Christmas book next. They sell big.” I haven’t seen this one yet, so I can’t comment, but based on the trailer it looks like it might be alright. I have high hopes!

This is a Thing: Trailer Tuesday! Ollie and Moon

6 Sep

A few weeks ago I posted the book trailer for Jarrett J. Krososzcka’s upcoming Ollie the Purple Elephant. Since then, I’ve been looking for more trailers of upcoming picture books, and decided I would start a new “thing” on this blog – Trailer Tuesday! Every Tuesday I’ll share a trailer for an upcoming picture book that I’m looking forward to checking out. Mr. Schu’s centered his whole blog around book trailers (although he’s an elementary school librarian and so doesn’t limit himself to picture books) and has enjoyed great success, so I thought this would be a fun thing to try.

Book trailers, like movie trailers, give you a taste of the story and characters. Sometimes they’re animated, sometimes not. Sometimes, as is the case for chapter books, the publisher has even created a little film with live actors in order to give a real flavor of the story. Many publishers have their own YouTube channels on which they can promote their books.

What a neat way to get readers excited about an upcoming book!

So, without further ado, I present my first (well, second, if you count Ollie) upcoming book trailer! It’s for Ollie and Moon (another Ollie? What the heck!) by Diane Kredensor. Not an upcoming book, technically, since it was published in April, but I personally haven’t gotten my hands on it yet so it’s upcoming for me! It looks perfectly delightful! I can’t wait to find out what the surprise is!
