Nim’s Island trailer!

Nim's Island trailers and video clips on Yahoo! Movies

Can you imagine my frustration yesterday when I got the link …. and my computer stubbornly refused to play it! Whatever I did, the video box stayed black and empty – I was just about ready to burst into tears.

Finally I tried on my laptop – and then the tears were happy ones.

Then I saw it on Entertainment Tonight and it was even better on the bigger screen (maybe my husband was right about finally updating our teeny little TV!)

So now it’s out there, this bit of it at least, like a book in the review copy, so it’s not quite part of you anymore, but the umbilical cord is still attached. I think I need a little longer to absorb it all… but for now, all I know is that I’m thrilled. It even made me laugh out loud a couple of times – and I’d seen one of those filmed!

We were SO lucky to get those actors.


  1. Mary Oh, Wendy! Squeee!!! It looks fantastic. My daughter and I simply can't wait. Congrats to you!
