Another lovely book trailer for a gorgeous book just released from Eerdmans. Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet have teamed up for a stunning creation about Peter Roget and his Thesaurus. I recently saw an original piece of art by Melissa Sweet for this at Society of Illustrators and it blew my mind. Her collage illustrations are unparalleled. Check it out! The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus, 2014.
Just heard about a fun book coming out from Enchanted Lion Books. I’m aching to get my hands on a copy and see its book + jacket cover combo in person. I applaud when people use book jackets for good use rather than just duplicating book and cover. Sounds like a sweet plot and the illustrations have me intrigued. Check out the trailer for The Jacket by Kirsten Hall, illustrated by Dasha Tolstikova.
Even though I have yet to secure a copy for myself as it came out during my bleary-eyed first couple weeks with new baby, I want to make sure and alert all to the existence of a new Greg Pizzoli book: Number One Sam! His book, The Watermelon Seed, from last year is a reigning favorite for me and I cannot wait to see this new one.
(I have yet to mention that Greg was one of the first authors I’ve been able to meet since moving to NYC. He even kindly signed my book with a belated birthday note since my husband gave it to me last September.)
Yesterday’s review highlighted one of my favorites from last year’s publications and near the end I linked to this trailer that appears to be a follow-up to the story, As Férias Do Pequeno Urso, or at least contains the same adorable characters of Papa Bear and Little Bear from The Bear’s Song by Benjamin Chaud. The trailer makes me too excited to keep it buried, so here it is for your viewing pleasure in case you didn’t click through to it yesterday!
Another fun book trailer for a sweet book recently released. I just love Matt Phelan’s art.
And random fact, panda bears were one of my favorite animals for a while as a kid.
