The Wolves of Mercy Falls: A Stop Motion Trailer for Linger, by Maggie Stiefvater. This trailer was chosen by lovely Lara, who wins copies of Rich and Mad (William Nicholson) and Numbers (Rachel Ward). Congrats to you, Lara! And thanks to everyone for taking part - there were some REALLY good suggestions. But why did the Linger trailer come out on top?
1. The music - written and performed by Maggie herself, I believe. Beautiful and atmospheric and simply gorgeous.
2. It's a simple idea, brilliantly executed.
3. THE SHEER AMOUNT OF TIME AND EFFORT IT MUST HAVE TAKEN! And not by some specialist trailer-making company, but by the author herself. Maggie, I salute you!
So, here's the trailer in all its glory.
