Ling and Ting Birthday Party: Behind the Booktrailer

And the party continues! I thought, in the interest of party conversation, I'd tell you a fun anecdote about the book trailer as well as a sneak peak at third Ling and Ting book (yes, there's going to be another! I'm working on it now!)

Hopefully, you have seen the super cute  Ling and Ting Share A Birthday book trailer (created by the Sasquatch). Just in case you haven't, here it is again:

Usually, I have my niece Lily  voice the booktrailer and recorded her accordingly. However, we found out last minute that the Happy Birthday Song has a crazy copyright and since we couldn't afford to pay the rights for it, we had to make a quick emergency change. We were in a bit of a quandary, until I remembered there were some friends of friends in the area who had twins! It was too perfect! With gracious permission from the parents, I had a real-life Ling and Ting voicing the trailer:

They even helped me for the next book!

Here's a sneak peak at one of the illustrations for the 3rd Ling and Ting book:

Can you see where I got the inspiration?

Thanks so much, Emily and Olivia!!!
