Exploding Chickens Student-Made Book Trailers!

Entries are rolling in for my My Life Video Book Trailer Competition in partnership with Dymocks Children's Charities

I'm particularly enjoying this entry from 'Sir Rex' (who appears to be a cat, but he / she thanks Brianna, Lindsay, Cathy and iMovie in the credits). 

The graphics in this video are super cool! Nice work C Mills :)

And, look at this funny not-yet-exploded chicken in the entry from Elain Whitton! So. Good.

Top prize is $500 cash for the filmmaker plus $500 worth of books for your school. Entries close 31 August 2016 at 11:59pm.

In other words - it's not too late to get involved! >>

Before I go, I have to share some storyboards the awesome students at Mt Waverley Primary School have been working on ahead of their entries. Boom!

National Bookshop Day 2016

Happy National Bookshop Day!

Saturday August 13 is National Bookshop Day 2016. Don't forget to support your local bookshop by buying a book and sharing a photo with the hashtag #nationalbookshopday.

Being in a bookstore is an escape from the world, and one of my favourite places to be.
