After a hiatus of a few years, the Hopkins & Barton Book Trailer Manufactory is back. Here’s our little guy, just turned two and a half, talking about a book titled Crap Cars.
Is it a trailer? A review? It’s definitely a recommendation. If not for the book itself, for the joy of saying the book’s name, over and over again. With gusto!
New work, as Emily notes, from the Hopkins & Barton Book Trailer Manufactory:
It is, as Emily says, the second installment in our book trailer manufacturing project, following the breakaway success of “They Don’t Have On Clothes, a Book Trailer for Luminous Airplanes by Paul La Farge.”
“Breakaway success” in the sense of 130 views total, as of today.
Not quite the more than half million viewers of “3-year-old recites poem, “Litany” by Billy Collins.”
But I always remember what Ryan Murphy told me when I interviewed him for Poets & Writers: “[E]ven just fifty readers, he says, ‘kind of blows my mind.’“
Or, a book trailer for They Don’t Have On, by Clothes.
Possibly a new line of work for our family?
Can three-year-olds sell literary fiction?
I guess we’ll see how this one does first—test the waters—before we hang up the shingle for the Hopkins & Barton Book Trailer Manufactory.
