Peanut Butter and Jellyfish Trailer Exclusive!

Do your kids love book trailers as much as my kids do? It’s a great way, I’ve found, to get kids interested in a book and these days children’s book trailers can be as exciting as movie trailers!

It’s also new medium for creative types like illustrators and authors to play in. And if they have a background in art like Jarrett Krosoczka who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, then WATCH OUT because you are in for a treat!

I’m so excited to debut his trailer for his newest picture book, Peanut Butter and Jellyfish!!!

Peanut Butter and Jellyfish by Jarrett Krosoczka

Peanut Butter and Jellyfish are the best of friends. They swim up. They swim down. They swim all around. Except near Crabby, who never has anything nice to say to them. “You two swim like humans” is the least of his insults.

Then one day Crabby is caught in a lobster trap and needs their help! Should they help him? It’s Peanut Butter and Jellyfish to the rescue! Crabby might be afraid of heights . . . but will he be brave enough to apologize?

    • Hi Lisa,
      I love Jarrett’s illustrations too! I also like that his story about friendship is not a trite treatment of two buddies going on adventures together but there is a real issue that kids can relate to. Should you help out the crab who is mean to you? I don’t think I’ve read a picture book that presents this friendship dilemma so clearly yet this is such a great thing for kids to think about.

    • Hi Eric,
      I know what you mean about a teaser … I wish I had the book to crack open now that I really need to know what happens to the crab!!! Do you know Jarrett’s birthday? If you do, I look forward to reading your post! You have the best activities to go with the authors’ books! I am still chuckling over the boxing one! (My kids like to box too!)

    • Hi Ann,
      Book trailers ARE so much fun! And very effective too! Now I am dying to read Peanut Butter and Jellyfish. I had heard about Jarrett’s picture book through a Skype author visit but I didn’t know much about the plot. It really did help me understand what the book was about and why I should read it! Before I saw the video I just thought it was cute aquatic picture book with a play on words.

    This looks like a great book! I may have to pre-order for my son and I to read.

    Thanks so much for sharing on Turn It Up Tuesday! We love having you! 🙂

    • Hi Natasha,
      Thanks so much for your kind words! I’m so glad you like the trailer! I’d love to hear what your son thinks! I may have to pre-order as well! Now I MUST KNOW what happens to the crab! I would love a surprise ending too! (Are they all three going to be best buds? That’s an easy ending but easy is not necessarily the most interesting).
