Last week, I was thrilled when super librarian Julie Found emailed me to say her students had created a book trailer for Max Finder Mystery: Collected Casebook #4. You can watch it on Julie’s blog: We Found the Library! (great title btw.)
I was so happy to see the video for many reasons. First: it’s MY book, obviously! Second: it’s kids making media, re-mixing my characters and making them their own, which is always amazing. Some writers are terrified if people play with their worlds, characters or stories, but personally, I’m honoured. To create something so meaningful to someone that THEY want to create with it tells me I’m on the right path.
Thanks to the kids at William Burgess for making great media and thanks to their rocking librarian, Julie Found for inspiring them to do so!
