About This book Series

Written by Josh Gottsegen
Illustrated by Sehreen Shahzad-Naqvi.

Inside this burgeoning ecosystem, some conflicts and issues affect the peaceful lifestyles of Tropland’s inhabitants. For Joosh’s young son,  Mo, a trustworthy ‘whiz kid’ with a thirst for knowledge, and his best friend, a slapstick yet lovable monkey, Randy, whose long tail is the ultimate counterpart to his clumsiness, that’s reason enough for adventures and episodic storylines based on witty conspiracies, child-like investigations, and tournaments of a variety of sports.

Each storyline includes Coco, Mo’s toddler sister, a modern-day Pebbles Flintstone, who is mostly quiet yet the wisest of the group, as well as Kwamee, a flying dragon lizard with a Woody Allen personality, who reluctantly participates in the adventures for one reason or another.

Crime is not much of an issue unless it’s centered around Tropland’s evil mob boss– a tiny poison arrow frog, Don Ribbit and his crew who want to take control and instill a more chaotic and junk-filled system.

“I loved this book encouraging kids to eat healthy food. It would be a much healthier world if every kid went on a blue banana berry adventure. I encourage everyone to read this book with their children.”

Nancy Cushing-Jones, Creative Projects Group

“The kids loved the book! They were quite engaged through reading it. You got a “I looooved it!” and you might be glad to know that it became potty reading material today too! The kids were all very intrigued about why the characters were blue… One of my kids picked up the book today and asked the teachers to read it during lunch So it was lunch time with Joosh today! :)”

 Sharon Lee, Preschool Teacher

“I wish you could see the joy my students have when listening intently to the book and don’t get me started on their love of the juice recipes! I actually had a student ask for the juice today during snack time. Thank you for making a health conscious, elementary special education teacher’s job a whole lot easier!”

 – Holly Tonak, Teacher

The characters are arorable and being an artist myself I was captivated by the absolutely vibrant illustrations and just how much I couldn’t WAIT to turn the page.The wonderful story was brought to life!!
