Book Trailer Premiere: Leo: A Ghost Story

Have you looked at my book release calendar recently? If yes, you already know you're going to leave your local independent bookshop with a heavy stack of children's books on August 25. It is one of the most exciting book release days of the year. 

You should pick up a copy of Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson's Leo: A Ghost Story on that fine August day. I think you'll understand why after you watch this adorable book trailer. 

Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett; illustrated by Christian Robinson 

You would like being friends with Leo. He likes to draw, he makes delicious snacks, and most people can't even see him. Because Leo is also a ghost. When a new family moves into his home and Leo's efforts to welcome them are misunderstood, Leo decides it is time to leave and see the world. That is how he meets Jane, a kid with a tremendous imagination and an open position for a worthy knight. That is how Leo and Jane become friends. And that is when their adventures begin. This charming tale of friendship—from two of the best young minds in picture books: the author of the Caldecott Honor–winning Extra Yarn and the illustrator of the Bologna Ragazzi Award–winning Josephine—is destined to become a modern classic that will delight readers for years to come.

Borrow Leo: A Ghost Story from your school or public library after August 25, 2015. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
