Tales of Midlandia

A delightful series of picture and beginner’s chapter books.

TALES OF MIDLANDIA is named for its setting, a fictional island that is modeled after a typical American small town. Midlandia is unique because of its citizens, the Midlandians. Though they are animal-like in appearance, each Midlandian is smart, skilled in a particular craft, and has a very human personality.

Each story deals with universal concepts and social situations that will be relatable to any young child or parent. From bullying to bad dreams, from table manners to temper tantrums—the Midlandians experience it all. With its humorous writing, and its beautifully rendered cast of nearly thirty characters, TALES OF MIDLANDIA would make for an excellent addition to the bookshelves of both the young and the young at heart.
