Yeah, I know people…

It’s nice to know famous people…or in this case, people with famous hands.

Through only one degree of separation, I know Colleen, a fantastically creative gal who works in the publishing biz. Colleen was bored at work and made a video about one of Roaring Brook’s new books, ABC3D by Marion Bataille. The video was picked up by a typography blog and from there it got lots of hits via YouTube. On Tuesday, the video was featured on all MySpace user’s homepages. Now, thanks to Colleen’s fancy hand(wo)manship and fab selection of a soundtrack, the video has launched advanced sales of the new book (that doesn’t come out until October) so much so that it is now ranked #41 on Amazon.com’s bestseller list (for ALL books, not just kids books!).

Anyway, it looks like just about the damn coolest way to learn the alphabet EVER.

Wahoo, Colleen!
