Lights, Camera . . . ACTION!

I don't know about you, but I love watching previews at the movies. It's like getting the best parts of a movie in only a few minutes.

So it's no wonder that I enjoy clever book trailers.

Here's Josh Berk's "Release Day" music video that's so filled with joy, you can't help but grin . . .

How about this sweet rap video from Mark Peter Hughes, when he finds out his novel, Lemonade Mouth, will be produced by Disney.

For an explosion of creativity, check out Maggie Stiefvater's trailer for her novel Shiver. Maggie created paper cut-outs for stop motion AND the music!

And check out her fabulous trailer for her brand new book, Linger . . .

"What's that, Hammy? Really? Okay. I'll tell them."

Ahem, Hammy the Hamster wants you to watch his video. He says it's the only way he can become a famous movie star.

(For being small, furry creatures, hamsters can have such big heads!)

Thanks for joining us today at the movies! And, incidentally, for our 300th blog post! Wahoo! *** Throws confetti ***
