Parents’ page

As a parent myself, I know how important it is to ensure the books my child is reading has an important message to take away. On this page you will find a brief description of each of the Knome books to put your mind at ease.

Background

The Knomes may be action-packed adventures, but it’s not all just fun and games. Each story has a strong moral behind it, so there is plenty to talk about when the reading is over.

Here is an overview of the messages and ideas behind the different books:

The Magic Knome

The_magic_knome_200pxThe magic Knome is a tribute to imagination. The Knome creates a fantasy castle and fights the forest monster Mordobe – This is an anagram for boredom. In the story Menza fights a forest monster, but in reality he uses his imagination to fight boredom.

The Dragon Sword

The message here is somewhat similar to the Spiderman story:

‘With great strength comes great responsibility.’

Dramon gets to choose between a chest full of gold or the Dragon Sword and the commitment that comes with it. Dramon chooses the Sword, but what would you choose?
