Video Sunday: Happy Weirdo Video Day
Mark this one in the files of How Did I Miss This? I loved me my Knucklehead by Jon Scieszka when I reviewed it in August so how’d I go for a whole month without seeing the book trailer? A mystery. Enjoy it now anyway.

Mr. David Hyde Costello continues the fine tradition of scaring kids away from their school janitors. This video comes via Scholastic and shows how Costello teamed up with students to write Mr. Allgunky and the Missing Monster. Have you noticed that the big publishers are doing more and more of these little videos these days? Trend watch.

And I should probably stay on topic, but these two videos made me laugh, and so I’m declaring today Weirdo Video Day. I’m very pleased with this first one. To my mind it’s all in the voice.

The second comes from Japan and I adore it. Apparently this cat (Maru) is huge over there.
