    Wow, this looks fantastic. I’ve already watched this trailer twice in a row and will come back for more. I hope this movie comes to LA!!

    The trailer is totally enticing! Wish I could fly from LA to Cambridge to see the premiere in October. Looking forward to wide distribution as I’m already hooked.

    Has there been an organizer for a showing in the San Francisco Bay Area? I’m sure we could put something together with the help of several children’s lit organizations here. Can’t wait for the film!

    Steven, it was a true delight to meet you and get a “preview” last evening. As I mentioned, for me this work is an inspirational statement of the importance of children’s lit for each of us and for the culture at large.
    Best of luck launching it into the larger world.

    I just saw the film at the Nashville Southern Literary Festival and am completely satisfied!! I saw the best in today’s children’s literature talking about their work — it seemed to me that each, in his or her own way, talked about using the expressive arts to invite an emotional response from the ‘reader’ or ‘listener’ — that theme came out over and over again, whether a writer writes for herself or imagines an audience of children. The “NYTimes” had it wrong on Friday – the picture book is NOT dead. Reading for pleasure is not dead. We read to find out about ourselves and the world. Children do the most complex decoding when they listen to a book and either imagine or see, simultaneously, the visual images – show this film to parents, to teachers, to test-makers, to Arne Duncan!
