Happy Tuesday! I love Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate's books and book trailers. It is always a special day when I get to launch one of Katherine's fabulous book trailers.
Before you read how Katherine finished my sentences, please watch Endling: The Last's book trailer two or three times. :) Happy watching and reading!
Endling: The Last's book trailer just blew me away when I saw it for the first time. The adventure, the drama, the friendship, the laughter: it's all there!
Max Kostenko‘s cover illustration for ENDLING: THE LAST is just incredible. Kids are going to love it. He had to create two new species from scratch—a “dairne,” who looks a bit like a standing Labrador, and a “wobbyk,” who resembles an adorable fox with giant ears.
Byx is... despite her small size and great self-doubt, a truly tough female character. She was so much fun to write.
Story is how we make sense of our crazy, heartbreaking, glorious world.
Mr. Schu, you should have asked me how I managed to type ENDLING with a dog sitting on my lap the whole time. (With great difficulty. Stan’s a meticulous copy editor, but his breath is atrocious.)
Look for Endling: The Last on May 1, 2018.
