Book Trailer: Liesl and Po

I don't often post book trailers, but I saw this trailer for Liesl and Po this morning on Night Writer, and had to repost it. This trailer is awesome. It totally makes me want to read the book.  I'm reminded a bit of The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, but I believe Liesl and Po is a traditional text novel with illustrations rather than a half-text, half-illustrated one like Hugo Cabret. Has anyone read an ARC of Liesl and Po? Is it as amazing as this trailer makes me hope?

Liesl and Po will be released on October 4, 2011 (soon!).

Summary (from Goodreads):
Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.

That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable

Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.
