Welcome to Moopertown! In Moopertown, everyone is special – in their own special way!

Join the Mooper team at Wild Things for a Super Workshop! This workshop will feature a reading, a Q&A, and a sing along. You will also learn some writing tips from Fiona Harris (author) in her writing workshop, and you will create your own Super Mooper with Scott Edgar (illustrator) in his illustration workshop. To finish off, you will learn the Moopertown song! Recommended for approximate ages 5-9.

This fun, funny, and affirming series will entertain children of all ages. In each book we are introduced to a new Mooper – Musical Markus, Nervous Nellie, Dramatic Dom, and Giggling Gertie. At first they seem to have a really silly trait – Markus loves to sing… all the time, Nellie is always nervous, Dom is overly dramatic, and Gertie just can’t stop giggling – but it’s these very traits that eventually transform these Moopers to superhero status!

With humorous, sweet, character-driven stories and a richly-detailed world that children will engage with, this exciting new series celebrates the idea that our differences are what make us unique, and we are all capable of being superheores when we can see the best in ourselves.

'Reminiscent of Dr Seuss and the Mr Men series, Super Moopers is the perfect bridge between a picture book and junior fiction, and will keep young ones giggling and their parents entertained.' - Better Reading Blog.
