Coming Soon from SPMG: Kidtropolis by Ray Brown

by Anna Tellman Stumpf

Kidtropolis is found in The Book of the Imagination. This book is provided to a young Mya as she struggles with some of life’s bigger issues. One way to help a young person is to give them answers, but Mya’s grandfather hands her a book. A book with empty pages.
Mya’s book takes her to Kidtropolis. Kidtropolis is a magical crazy mixed up world where kids run everything. The mayor is a kid, the policeman is a kid, and so is the fireman. Mya finds hysterical kids with fun lives, a rambunctious kid named Farticus, and even a very unhappy kid, Louie. Among the kids are helpful storks, forests and a village made out of poo. While these may not sound like keys to answers life’s big questions for a kid, they provide an entertaining backdrop to finding those answers through imagination. Read more by clicking here.

Mya’s book takes her to Kidtropolis, which is a magical, crazy, mixed-up world where kids run everything. The mayor is a kid, the policeman is a kid, and so is the fireman. Mya finds hysterical kids with fun lives, a rambunctious kid named Farticus and even a very unhappy kid; Louie. Among the kids are helpful storks, forests and a village made out of poo. While these may not sound like keys to answers life’s big questions for a kid, they provide an entertaining backdrop to finding those answers through imagination.

What a child will find in Kidtropolis is their ability to dream and to use those dreams to help shape their reality. Children will relate to Mya because she is confused by life and what better way to be confused than to step into an imaginary world that makes absolutely no sense? Kidtropolis is where Mya learns to dream and to believe.

“Well, I’d say to try to only think on those things that matter. But don’t just think about it, believe it. That’s why we can do what we want, be whoever we want. It’s not that we think we can’t; it’s because we believe we can.”
