Books on Film: Taking the Book Trailer to New Places

As a wildly inhibited librarian, I appreciate personality. Every time I turn around it seems Mac Barnett and Adam Rex are letting their personalities (code word here for weirdness) show. Take, for example, this crazy “book trailer” for the picture book Chloe and the Lion starring Mr. Barnett and Mr. Rex. I haven’t seen anything quite like it.
