The Suburb Beyond the Stars: A Short (Smart, Funny, Mysterious, Scary) Movie

Thanks to Cynthia Leitich Smith for this fantastic, fun movie!

From author M.T. Anderson's official website:

This book trailer, stitched together out of pieces filmed before
M. T. Anderson’s unfortunate disappearance, discusses his new book The Suburb Beyond the Stars.

It is part of a larger set of documents about the strange and mysterious sightings and deaths in the area of Mount Norumbega — all of which will be released soon on Scholastic’s website. We’re working to make them available to a waiting public.


We hope you can make more sense of this film than we can.
