Adventure of Meno!
Campy humor, retro art and simple-yet-sweet adventures are the hallmarks of the first two books in the Adventure of Meno series by Tony Diterlizzi and his wife Angela. Published by Simon & Schuster and “Presented in Dazzling Meno-Color”, kids and kids at heart will love cuddling up together and giggling as they get to know space elf Meno (“I Am Meno, Elf of Space, Here to Visit Human Race!”) and his best friends Yamagoo and Wishi in the first two titles in the series: Big Fun! and Wet Friend!
Publisher’s Weekly calls the series “A preschool epic so polished that it looks untouched by human hands” and PixieStix.com describes as “the clean layout, punchy full bleed art, and bouncy text add up to a high-style package that will be equally at home on a children’s bookshelf or a pop-culture lover’s coffee table” please visit www.planetmeno.com for more “Big Fun”.
We ran a review of the Adventure of Meno books back in January. The books were reviewed by Ronna Mandel of Good Reads with Ronna (click here to read). The books have become a regular part of our bedtime library selections. Teagan LOVES the Adventure Of Meno books. She enjoys all the characters but it seems that Wishi is her favorite. She loves announcing each character’s entrance. “WISHI!” Teagan usually explodes with cheers when we come upon Wishi. AND we have to sing the Meno theme song set to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. My husband and I cracked up when we saw that one of the pages in Wet Friend! included a random David Hasselholf reference! I love the retro styles of the books and the Jetson style friendly characters. My whole family looks forward to reading the new Meno releases Uh-Oh Sick! and Yummy Trip! The books touch on topics and adventures that every kid (and parent) can relate to. Teagan also received the Wishi Blanket. The blankets are custom made and are the perfect size for Teagan! This has become her new blankie.
