Teaser trailer #2 for KEEP OUR SECRETS, a color-changing kids' book by Jordan Crane. Coming in November 2011 from McSweeney's McMullens, the brand new children's imprint from McSweeney's Books in San Francisco.

Two young children wander through their noisy house and quiet back yard with fresh eyes, discovering a hidden world full of strange and delightful surprises. Featuring heat-sensitive, color-changing ink on every page!

Each drawing has hidden images beneath, visible only when the reader rubs the page to warm the disappearing black ink. Among the hidden images: a man in the moon, a briefcase full of hidden messages, and a tree that doubles as a high-rise apartment building for squirrels.

A tactile and engaging book for readers of all ages! (Note: The color-change effect does not wear out. It's repeatable, over and over again!)

McSweeney's would like to thank the amazing Mu-Ming Tsai and Iris Lai of Muris Media in San Francisco for their invaluable role in making this video a reality.
