Scholastic Makes Sherry A Book Trailer!



This book trailer for I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES is fantastic!

It's cute, funny, captures the mood of the book. It's a nice length: 1:22

But you know what I really truly love about this video? The voice.

The voice is perfect for Sherry. So perfect, it gives me the chills.

So...whose voice is it?

A little research uncovered that this is the voice of Caryn Clark, The Hip Chick Voice.

Caryn's a Floridian (a fun word to type and say) who's done professional voice overs for a variety of products. In fact, you probably recognize her voice. From TV commercials for the upcoming Olympics. And TV commercials for Hannah Montana and iCarly products. As the narrator for the Nintendo Wii Fit Plus game. To name only a few.

Thank you Scholastic for the wonderful book trailer with the perfect voice!

And thank you, also, to Stacy of the Cat's Meow for her recent review of I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES. It's lovely.


(p.s. Sorry Facebook friends. I know I already mentioned the new book trailer, but I don't know how to turn off the auto feed from this blog to Facebook. And if I did figure out how to turn it off, I'd probably never figure out how to turn it back on. And then you'd miss all these delightful blog posts! :) )

OMG. So cute! I think that is one of the best book trailers I have ever seen. I am serious. It makes me want to read the book - and that's the whole point, right?

This is FANTASTIC! The voice, the background music, the images--you must be so pleased.

Cool. I enjoyed this.

Great video – and, yes, that voice is perfect in capturing the tone and character of a teen-aged girl.

Teresa said...

Very cool, Barrie!

Cute and very Sherry!

It's so nice that have those kinds things to capture the book perfectly.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Awesome! And that voice does sound very familiar (and quite perfect). I wonder if she's the voice behind the Junie B. Jones audio books...

Totally deserving! Good job, Scholastic! I am hoping, crossing my fingers that ISDDM will be at my kids' bookfair in March.
