This first one is for Ollie & Moon by Diane Kredensor and it's super cute!
Loved the trailer! Cute, right? Here's the blurb:
Ollie and Moon are best friends, and Ollie loves surprising Moon almost as much as Moon loves guessing Ollie's surprises. Today, Ollie has the best surprise yet for Moon, and she can't wait to guess what it is! As they gambol through the streets of Paris, hints about the surprise accumulate every step of the way. Will Moon guess Ollie's surprise before they reach it? Tickled readers will be guessing right alongside Moon!
Diane Kredensor is an Emmy award-winning children's television director and artist. She was inspired to write this "buddy story" by her love of people, her love of travel, and her love of cheese! The distinctive art style features Diane's bold, stylized characters superimposed atop Sandra Kress's charming photographs of Paris. French words and landmarks add to the fun. This delightful friendship story will keep readers laughing as they join Ollie and Moon on their cumulative guessing game through the City of Light.
This next one has a scarrry monster and it's the SUBSTITUTE TEACHER!! This trailer is for Substitute Creacher by Chris Gall. I love the illustrations on this one.
So awesome! Here's the blurb:
The troublemaking students of Ms. Jenkins' class arrive at school one day to discover a substitute creacher has come to put a stop to their monkey business! He regales them with mind-boggling stories about his former students who didn't follow the rules: Keith the glue-eater, Zach the daydreamer, and Hank the prankster, to name a few. But even this multi-tentacled, yellow-spotted, one-eyed monster's cautionary tales about the consequences of mischief-making can't seem to change the students' wicked ways until he reveals the spookiest and most surprising story of all: his own.
Chris Gall's vibrant artwork leaps off the page with a dynamic comic book aesthetic that will grab both parents and monster-loving kids!
We love reading children's books. Sometimes when we go to the library we usually spend twenty minutes in the children's section just browsing the children's picture books.
That was a nice little break from YA and romance trailers, right? LOL. But no worries, we'll be back with a YA trailer next week. Let us know what you think of the Ollie & Moon and Substitute Creacher trailers. Do you still read children's picture books? Do you have a favorite (ours are the David books by David Shannon)?
