Book Trailer Premier: How It Feels to Be a Boat by James Kwan
Let me be clear – I don’t actually post every book trailer I’m asked to premiere. If I’m lucky, I may already love a book and then find myself offered the chance to debut it after previously falling for it hook, line, and sinker. How It Feels to Be a Boat by James Kwan fits the bill perfectly. It dwells in a kind of gentle illogical logic that kids really dig. You know what it reminded me of the most? Rude Cakes by Rowboat Watkins. Silly, sweet, oddly moving stuff. Best of all, creator James Kwan appears to be willing to go all out when it comes to book promotion. I mean, I’m happy to make videos for my books, but green screen technology? That’s beyond my yen. I salute you, man.

Thanks to HMH for the premiere.
