Read the Books

The Mostly Made Up Adventures of Malcolm & Cooper began as a series of improvised bedtime stories and have been turned into interactive children's books with actions, phrases, games, and dance moves! These books are sure to excite and entertain children ages 9 and under, keeping even the busiest bodies engaged throughout the storytelling.
