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.
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 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 Knomes’ Secret Protector
The message here is that ‘diversity in a society is a strength’.
The Dragon Sword
The message here is somewhat similar to the Spiderman story:
‘With great strength comes great responsibility.’
As the Knome Dramon finds the Dragon Sword he learns that wielding such power can only be allowed if he promises to fight evil and defend the weak. 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?
The Knome Tree Heroes
The message here is ‘practice makes perfect’
The Knome Thok is too lazy to practice his skills at the Knome training grounds. But as the tree is attacked by flying thieves, Thok fails to protect the Knome tree. Only with a lot of help from his friend Thero, do they manage to chase off the thieves.
The message: ‘it is not only outer strength that defines a hero’
The inventor Knome Envo wants to be a hero just like the strong,
red masked warrior Knomes. On his adventure his learns that his strength is an inner strength; his ingenuity. And he is just as much a hero when he makes his inventions as the strong warrior Knomes are, when they do their fighting.
The Wild Race of the Knomes
The message: ‘Always believe in yourself, even when others don’t’
Nobody believes that the little Knome, Minno, can handle any big challenges due to his small size. But Minno is dead set on proving them wrong by winning the Wild Race of the Knomes. Soon everybody learns that with great self confidence and determination anything is possible.
