Extinction Book Trailer


Wow! My publishers, Scholastic, have made a book trailer for me! And thanks to James and Joshua for showing me how to embed it on my website. Watch it. It is absolutely awesome! It was made by a very talented film student in Sydney. She used stock images and clips and sounds that are available on various internet sites. I am so impressed with what she has done.

When I first watched the trailer, I got chills. It is so powerful and energetic. Is my book really that scary? I guess I kind of forget that it is, knowing it so well and being so close to it. Tell me what you think. And send the trailer to all of your friends or show them how to find it on YouTube by searching for Lizzie Wilcock Extinction.

  2. Hello.
    Josh sent me your link via my site. It looks fabulous. The class is going wild for Extinction!!!! I have posted the link for them.

    • Hey! Thanks Melissa. Yes, the trailer is great and the book is selling really well, at least around New Lambton! You’re kids are so great and you have really opened up the world of computers and internet for them in a huge way. Nothing against your predecessor, but technology wasn’t his strong point. Now these kids really get a chance to shine. Great job!

  3. I love your book!!!!! It is so interesting. Every time i read something i am always keen to find out what happens next!!! I enjoy doing art with you aswell. You are a great art teacher. If this is how book 1 is i bet book 2 will be good aswell. The trailer is really good aswell.

  7. I think when the white flash, and everyone dies is a bit scary, just because you described it so well, and I could easily get a glimpse of what Annie and Mac could see! SCARY!

  8. Hello Lizzie,

    • Hi Airlie
      Thanks for writing to me. Your teacher and I went to teachers college together and have been friends ever since. I am thrilled that you guys read Extinction 1 in your class. Extinction 2: The Explosive Conclusion is out now. You can get it at Maclean’s Booksellers in Toronto and Hamilton, and any online store. It might even be in the Scholastic Book Club catalogue just before Christmas. Tell Mrs Caban that if she would like me to visit the class, I can come on a Monday or Tuesday. She could get in touch with me. I would love to come and meet you and answer any of your questions.

  9. hmm that was a dissapointment as annie and mac can swim forever and hold thei breath forever. but in the video it looked like annine was struggelling to swim. but besides the faulty book reader it was really cool the tornado made it look like a moive. good job!!!!! oh and lizze plz check the extintion 2 page 🙂

  10. My 10 Year old LOVES Book one as do I his mum! It’ Awesome! and we want to read book 2 already! However, trailer is great but the start is a bit scary for me says my 10yr old boy and the mask at the end is also scary. But we love the rest and how the eye turns to the four elements and the number 8. Cant wait to read book 2!!!!

    • Hi Jo and Cam
      Thanks for your comment. I think it’s great, Mum, that you guys are sharing books with each other. What a way to bond! I hope my 4 year old and I will be talking about and sharing our favourite books soon. Yes, the trailer is a bit scary, especially the mask with the lion growling at the end. But the story is great (if I do say so myself). Let me know what you think of Book 2.

  11. -phew- !! Well, I just read it and in the end i’m like There has to be number 2 !!!
    Thanks sooo much. Great book also! So has the book came out yet ? I can’t wait to buy it!! I still can’t believe that happen!! It has great surspence which is good in a book. I can’t wait to read number 2 ! Also, i’m in Australia so I was sooo happy to see they came form Australia :]

    • Hi Jaiyden
      I am glad you liked EXtinction 1. Extinction 2: The Explosive Conclusion, is out now. It is even more suspenseful than the first, so I hope you love it. I think it is cool that the kids come from Australia. You will see more of Australia in the second book.
