Mr. Brightman

Welcome to Mr.Brightman’s KS2 Book Trailer Competition!

What is a ‘Book Trailer?’

A book trailer is similar to a film trailer – a short video to persuade the viewer to read the story.

To give you an idea, here’s my book trailer about one of my favourite books, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien:
