When I was a kid, an art project involved gloppy poster paint and a shoebox. No longer. Now kids make MOVIES. Some of the smart ones even make GOOD movies.

Here is a book trailer for Bigger than a Breadbox, made by an especially talented and inspiring twelve year old, after she read the book.  A girl named Lily.

I’m really quite stunned and honored. And I’m hoping she’ll hire me someday, when she’s a fancy moviemaker.  Check it out, and then please link it, forward it, pass it along, so that she can get many many hits, and be offered a job at Pixar, and hire me SOONER.

    Not only did I check it out (and was duly impressed)–I posted it on my Facebook wall. Wow. Wow. Double wow. As I said on FB, sure beats the heck out of any book report I ever did. Am ordering your book. Sounds well-done and I can’t wait to read it. Thanks for being brave and writing it.
