ZOONI TALES is about the adventures of an adorable pup named ZOONI. The book contains 3 stories and 2 mini-comics. What differentiates this book from every other graphic novel out there is that it is written entirely IN RHYME
Academic research about graphic novels clearly demonstrates that graphic novels help jumpstart visual literacy in kids, which in turn makes them better problem solvers in life. By combining the graphic novel format with rhyme, I am hoping to introduce more kids to poetry. Poetry, in turn, helps kids understand and express complex ideas, feelings, and experiences, and helps build foundational literacy skills. (So parents, while kids will read this book for the fun of it, behind the scenes, it will be accentuating their literacy skills. :) )
This 96-page book, available in both paperback and hardcover format, is targeted for ages 5-10. You can purchase it from all physical and online bookstores.
This book has been inspired by my covid-puppy Zooni. Stay tuned to learn more about that back story.
