Magic Of Make-Believe: Goon Holler Guidebook

December 5, 2012

Goon HollerShow a preschooler who doesn't like to play pretend, and I'll show you a mouse who doesn't like cheese. An analogy out of left field? Well, that's just the kind of mindset you'll have to adopt if you plan to visit Goon Holler. It's the fictional, wild world of a new wacky read by the creators of the Yo Gabba Gabba brand. (Know any preschooler who hasn't heard of that?) The Goon Holler Guidebook  is ideal for kids who may have moved on from the likes of Foofa and Plex, and are ready for more silliness with a side of smarts. Part songbook, cookbook and comic book, this cool, colorful book offers up plenty of fun for the five-and-over crowd, as they journey along with Toobaloth Grassfoot to a mythical land that's bound to tickle little funnybones and stretch imaginations far and wide. From a mermaid's guide to her favorite sea creatures, to a how-to-tell-a-joke primer for aspiring comedians, there's something in this book for everyone (including older sibs). If you're looking for something a little different to put under the tree this year, you've found it.

In a Nutshell: Gabba graduates will relish this new laugh-out-loud literary treat with plenty of activities and fun to get them through the new year.
