This morning Little Tug author Stephen Savage went 'Tug Spotting' for footage for the upcoming book trailer for Little Tug (on sale October 2!).
Check out Stephen's pictures and captions from this morning's tug spotting boat ride!
July 12, 2012: Macmillan Children's Publishing Group Director of Marketing Elizabeth Fithian took us on a tug-spotting boat ride.
Our fearless captain was Elizabeth's dad, Dick Kohn (middle). Also on board was video director David Franklin...
... and me, Stephen Savage -- author and illustrator of LITTLE TUG (Roaring Brook Press, Neal Porter Books).
The sun rose at 5:36am.
Hey, that looks like a page from the book!
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which connects Brooklyn with Staten Island, was the model for the bridge in the book.
David shot video footage for the upcoming tug trailer.
At 8:30, the beautiful morning light was gone and Captain Kohn returned to shore!
