It’s a Book by Lane Smith
Watch this book trailer video for a short animated film based on Lane Smith’s It’s a Book, an adorable picture book for children that celebrates traditional books. Watch as a book-loving ape and a tech-savvy donkey exchange words.
Playful and lighthearted with a subversive twist that is signature Lane Smith, It’s a Book is a delightful manifesto on behalf of print in the digital age. This satisfying, perfectly executed picture book has something to say to readers of all stripes and all ages.
