“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
Roald Dahl wrote great books, and like many children’s authors who came after him, the stories imprinted on children a world where anything was possible. We swam with Ariel, traveled with Max to where the wild things were, caught a train to the North Pole, shed a tear with Wilbur, and we joined Alice in her adventures…oh the places we went!
Now as adults, we can’t wait to introduce these special characters to our children, to see in their faces the delight we experienced not so long ago. This summer, SPMG wants to introduce you to a new children’s book that will without a doubt be a staple in your children’s book collection.
Just like the little engine who knew he could, six year old Mya blasts through the pages of Ray Lenard Brown’s new book, Kidtropolis. No ordinary girl, Mya, born with cerebral palsy, learns to overcome great difficulties and obstacles, not unlike the heroines we grew up with.
One day, her grandfather, noticing how Mya routinely sits by the window watching the neighborhood kids play, decides that it is time to introduce her to an old family book called The Book of the Imagination.
In it is a place inhabited only by children, a magical place where kids rule everything and all your wishes come true, and the place is called Kidtropolis. One evening, while Mya was being tucked into bed, she asked her grandfather “Where do babies come from?” Not knowing how to answer, her grandfather turned to the old family book and began reading.
The magic begins as soon as you open the door to Kidtropolis, but you must make sure to keep it open, as while all your dreams can come true, “everybody who smiles and says hello may not be people you want to get to know.” This proves to be valuable advice for Mya when she wakes up the next day…trapped in the book.
