Video Sunday: Coke Tongue (It’s More Innocent Than it Sounds) and Adorable Teens
Author Vicki Cobb first came to my attention when she won the Siebert Honor for her fabulous scientifically-minded picture book I Face the Wind. Little did I know that she also has quite a few videos on her website in which kids use science to do cool and gross things. I recommend you check out this site and look at the videos.
Here’s A Tongue Lashing
And here’s A Nose Job
Fun projects you can do with kids and all they need are spoons and coke…. wait. That didn’t sound quite right . . .
Not long ago I spoke to a class of YA authors and the subject of book trailers came up. I mentioned that First Second probably does the most cinematic trailers out there. Now there’s a new one for the graphic novel (slash movie tie-in?) Prince of Persia, based on the video game. I wasn’t going to get a copy. . . then I saw that LeUyen Pham is doing the art. I do love me some Pham. Here’s the trailer in question.
This one came from Mishaps and Adventures and I like it. It’s talking about book jackets in a series called The Art of the Book: Behind the Covers with Dave Eggers, Chip Kidd, Milton Glaser and moderator Michael Bierut at the 92nd Street Y in New York, December 4, 2006.
Now I will end here on this adorable teenage girl. She gets a gander at the newest Twilight book jacket (Breaking Dawn). It occurs to me that it is a bloody lucky thing that the current incarnation of the Internet wasn’t around when I was this girl’s age because if I had to walk around today with YouTube videos of me talking about how much I loved The Phantom of the Opera floating about the web . . . it boggles the mind. But she is adorable!
Thanks to ShelfTalker for the link.
