Adventures of Meno review and giveaway! CLOSED



I think I have one of the largest collections of children's books. I am constanly adding to our collection and recently I added two new books. These books are from the series of "Adventure of Meno". Here is a little more on this series and the authors.

"This six-book series about Meno, a nostalgically modern space-elf and his out-of-this-world adventures. Adventure of Meno was created by award winning author/illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi and his wife Angela. Each story is told with bright illustrations in nonsensical language, as if it were translated from Meno's Alien language into English. As childlike as they are sweet, these stories find humor in the simplest places, and are a delight to readers both young and old.

Review:
I am in love with the pictures in the Adventure of Meno series. Meno and his friends are adorable charactors. As for the story itself, my children really enjoy it. They both think Meno is a very funny. They laugh at his all of his friends and their silly names. Their favorite book is Book Two, "Wet Friend". They love all the different creatures and friends introduced in this book are so funny.

I also want to recommend that you and your child check out the official Meno site WWW.PLANETMENO.COM for more info on Meno and interactive activities.

Buy It:
You can purchase your own copies of Adventure Of Meno for $9.99 each at Borders.com

Upcoming Releases:
Two more books in the series "UH-OH SICK!" AND "YUMMY TRIP!" are set to be released on April 6, 2010.

Giveaway:
One lucky winner will win both of the "Adventure Of Meno" books (BIG FUN and WET FRIEND) as well as your choice of a custom made Meno or Wishi blanket.

I like that the pictures in the books are not crowded with all sorts of detail. Like you just have a pix of the charcter and what he is doing to illistrate...not a bunch of extra stuff crowding the page. extra stuff overwhelms toddlers and other children with learning disabilites

I found out that the authors like silly words, made up words, and get inspiration from them. Oh, and they also get inspiration from their sweet 2 year old.

I like that the background of each book stays the same color. Well at least it seemed that way from the preview
