A true YouTube phenomenon brings all the charm, liveliness, and storytelling verve of his viral videos to this adorably illustrated book that captures the imaginative world of a tyke turned action hero.
At first glance, Action Movie Kid looks like a normal kid, but anyone who has seen his videos knows better. The truth is that whether he’s out grocery shopping with his dad or playing with building blocks at home, anything he does can become a high-octane adventure of explosions, molten lava, flying sparks, or any other dramatic situation you can think of. And Action Movie Kid faces them all with his irresistible laugh and unflappable demeanor.
In his first book, Action Movie Kid goes on amazing adventures where anything is possible: Lego structures can become flying spaceships; toy light sabers can become real light sabers; and little boys can disappear into puddles if they’re not careful. Action Movie Kid reminds us of the one super power we all possess—imagination!
With creative illustrations that display the indomitable spirit of Action Movie Kid, this book is sure to win over the hearts and smiles of everyone who catches wind of the baddest, youngest superhero in town. Action Movie Kid to the rescue!
