.There's a nifty little video over at Neil Gaiman's Journal (here) which is so nicely done that I can't resist posting it here, in case you haven't seen it already. It's a trailer for Instructions, Neil's new children's book, which is forthcoming from HarperCollins in just twelve days.
Trailer is actually a pretty weak word for the thing. The vid is a pencils-to-painting animation of the entire book with Neil's narration. And since Neil reads extremely well and the paintings are all by Charles Vess . . . Well. That's all I have to say.
Except that I think it's going to sell a lot of copies, and not just to kids.
And that I wonder if it was Gaiman or Vess who decided to make the protagonist a cat. Good call, whosoever's idea it was.
