Book Trailer Unveiled for ‘A Child of Books’

By Maryann Yin 

Candlewick Press has unleashed a book trailer for the A Child of Books picture book. Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston worked together to write the story and create the illustrations.

The video embedded above features an introduction from the two collaborators and glimpses of their artwork. The publication date has been scheduled for September 6.

Here’s more from The Guardian: “A Child of Books is about a little girl who sails her raft ‘across a sea of words’ to arrive at the house of a small boy. There she invites him to come away with her on an adventure where they can journey through ‘forests of fairy tales,’ ‘across mountains of make-believe,’ and ‘sleep in clouds of song.'” (via Oliver Jeffers’ Facebook page)
