Planet Meno update

April 15, 2010

Greetings Earthlings!

With the release of the next two Adventure of Meno books, Uh-Oh, Sick and Yummy Trip, we’ve updated the Meno website with more goodies, including get well e-cards that you can send to a friend. How cool is that?

If you aren’t familiar with the silly series that I created with my loverly wife, Angela, let me give you the shortest summaries possible:

Book 1: BIG FUN! Meno is a space elf whose best friend is a nearsighted farting jellyfish. Seriously. Meno thinks farts are the funniest thing in the universe…and  I do too.

Book 2: WET FRIEND! Yamagoo longs for the sea and Meno summons his wish-granting friend, Wishi to create a new wet friend. Will it be plankton? David Hasselhoff? Or a talking goldfish? Hmmmm.

Book 3: UH-OH, SICK! Meno gets a head cold. Somehow Eddie Vedder shows up and ends up sick in bed with Yamagoo and an Irish setter. I’m not kidding.

Book 4: YUMMY TRIP! Meno and company go on on a picnic. Yamagoo rides on a bowling ball and Meno rides a carrot scooter through a cloud-filled sky.

These books were designed to instill silly fun while reading at a young age. All four titles are now available at your local bookstore. Please to enjoy!

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
