Book trailers are a phenomenon taking the internet by storm! They're a great way to share a sneak peek into new books and create excitement amongst readers.
With over 1500 books and 3000 gorgeous illustrations to choose from, StoryWeaver thought that book trailers would be a wonderful thing to create and share with our vibrant community... so drum roll please...here's our very first book trailer!
We decided to launch our YouTube Channel on World Earth Day, 2016 with a book trailer of 'Jadav and the Tree-place'. Written and illustrated by the immensely talented Vinayak Varma (who has recently been shortlisted for the 2016 Commonwealth Short Story Prize) the book tells the story of real-life hero Jadav 'Molai' Payeng who transformed a barren stretch of land on the Brahmaputra sand bank in to a lush forest 'filled with feathers and beaks and wings, with claws and tails and fangs.'
