Best Book Trailers We've Seen Lately

Our regular round-up of great and notable Canadian trailers.

We're in love with The Swing, Julie Morstad's illustrated board book of the Robert Louis Stevenson poem. This trailer does perfect justice to its charm.


The trailer for Hooked: When Addiction Hits Home, edited by Chloe Schantz-Hiltz with an introduction by Robert Munsch, provides a great introduction to this book about young people's true experiences of growing up with family members suffering from addiction.


The fantastic illustrations from War Brothers: The Graphic Novel by Sharon McKay and Daniel Lafrance are brought to life in the book's trailer. (Check out Sharon's post on our blog about the process of translating her book into a graphic novel).


Théodora Armstrong's story collection Clear Skies, No Wind, 100% Visibility is very much a book about place, as its trailer demonstrates.


As does the book itself, the trailer for Matadora by Elizabeth Ruth takes us into the 1930s' bullfighting scene and into the psyche of a spirited woman.


"Eyewitness Testimony" is a poem from David Seymour's new collection For Display Purposes Only, here made into a short film with Jeremy Munce starring a number of Canadian poets and novelists.


You've probably heard about SECRET by L. Marie Adeline, but have you seen the trailer yet? (Don't miss Adeline's conversation with Julie Wilson here at 49th Shelf.)

Here's the trailer for A Murder of Crows by David Rotenberg, who recently wrote about his book in a guest post on our site.


"Let it take shape when this world is a better place for girls. Daylight is so very far away." A gorgeous and intriguing trailer for The Selector of Souls by Shauna Singh Baldwin.
