Create a book trailer - giveaway

13th Sep 19

Love making book trailers? Or want to try it out for the first time? We have sets of Chris Riddell's new book, Guardians of Magic, to give to five schools or book groups that would like to create a book trailer of it for ReadingZone.

The Guardians of Magic is the first in The Cloud Horse Chronicles, published by Macmillan Children's Books.

The book is aimed at readers aged 8-11 years, but the book trailer project can be undertaken by any age range.

For primary aged children, The Guardians of Magic offers a range of great characters and plenty of adventure - perfect material for a book trailer project.

At secondary level, students can look to create a book trailer that will enthuse others to read The Guardians of Magic.

We have five sets of five books to give away to schools and book groups that would like to create a book trailer for ReadingZone by Christmas.

ReadingZone will run the book trailers on the ReadingZone website as part of our relaunch this autumn, so permissions will be needed.

If you would like to get involved, email your details to:

Synopsis of Guardians of Magic:

For as long as anyone can remember, children have made a wish on a cloud horse, never quite believing that their wishes will come true. But times are changing. The future of magic is in danger. Enemies are working together to destroy it - especially the magic of nature and its most powerful source, The Forever Tree.

Unless three brave children fight back and believe in the impossible, soon magic and the cloud horses will be gone. Zam, Phoebe and Bathsheba don't yet know how powerful they are...
