Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Muchokids?
Yes of course! Muchokids is a brand new entertainment platform. It’s a multimedia experience for kids comprised of original fantasy/adventure stories and books spanning multiple Muchokids series, as well as videos, games and an app coming very soon. Our various book series are designed to appeal to kids as young as 3 and up through 12 and hopefully even older.
We set up the main Muchokids storyline our first book, out now, called Galaxia and Her Quest to Save the Universe: #TheBeginning. It deals with Galaxia, our main character, losing her home planet to an attack. Everything she knows has been destroyed, and she is now the sole protector of a magical book, which is fabled to hold all the knowledge and power in the universe. Dangerous forces wish to acquire it. She needs help in protecting it! I don’t want to spoil any more, but let’s just say this is where we introduce kids from all over Earth and our hallmark themes of unity and diversity—the real messages we are trying to get across.
We already have so much content in the pipeline—like several other books completed from multiple upcoming MK series. You could say I like to get a little ahead of myself. But for now, this first Galaxia’s Quest book introduces it all. It’s available on Amazon to buy in hardcopy or on Kindle. Or you can read for free and/or watch the videobook on our website. For kids into comedy, action, science-fiction, fantasy, adventure—they should find something they like in our stories. We like to think there is a little something for everyone in there.
With your Muchokids platform, what kinds of ideas are you trying to get across to the public?
At Muchokids, the whole team is very forward-thinking. We are all about embracing diversity and including everyone. Sometimes we see people in the world who do not accept others, or even respect them, for whatever reason. This is something that should not be happening. We hope to combat that with our positive messages. We are in the year 2018!
Through entertainment, we want to encourage ideas in our stories of acceptance—no matter any perceived differences. We think think it’s a great lesson to impart on readers and hope parents agree! Doesn’t matter where you’re from, what color your hair is, how tall or short you are… everyone has a place in the Muchokids! And of course, we encourage parents to read the stories too, either for themselves or to their children, if young—there’s lots of jokes and things in there that mom and dad should appreciate as well!
The Book of Azbel, whispered in fable across the universe as the key to all knowledge and magic.
The Book was kept by Galaxia on her world of rare minerals and kind people. But one night, Alekko, a force of destruction beyond compare came for it—and left Galaxia’s planet in pieces.
Galaxia must assemble a team to protect The Book and save the universe.
Let the adventures begin!
