Earlier today, we shared a look at the Stranger Things merchandise created by artist Chogrin that combines fan favorite character Eleven with the monster called the demogorgon – and the “Elegorgon” art isn’t the only cool thing Chogrin has created recently. Chogrin also teamed with illustrator Pakoto to create the 40 page children’s book Kid del Toro (Lil’ Libros), which was inspired by the childhood of genre filmmaker Guillermo del Toro! You can pick up a copy of Kid del Toro at THIS LINK.
Here’s the information on Kid del Toro:
Introduce your little ones to some new monsters in both English and Spanish! (You never know, they might end up being their lifelong friends!)
Best friends can be found anywhere…even behind the closet or under the bed? Yes! Inspired by the fantastical and delightful childhood stories told in interviews by Guillermo del Toro, Kid del Toro follows young Guillermo as he defies his Abuela to stay up late to read monster stories and unexpectedly meets his very first best friend.
Kid del Toro is the exciting debut picture book by animators CHOGRIN and Pakoto, a sweet and fantastical tale inspired by the visionary Guillermo del Toro’s childhood love of Monsters. Parents will rave about this book because it’ll encourage their little one to be fearless (especially with things that go bump in the night) and to stand tall for themselves even in times of darkness.
Inspired by Guillermo del Toro’s childhood, a young boy learns to love and accept the fantastical monsters that visit him at nighttime.
This is an independently authored and published account of a childhood experience of Guillermo del Toro as heard through public interviews, and no affiliation with or endorsement by Mr. Del Toro is claimed or implied.
Some sample pages of Kid del Toro can be seen below, and this looks like it will be a fun book for all monster kids and del Toro fans to leaf through.
