Kid del Toro children’s book inspired by Guillermo del Toro’s childhood
Earlier today, we shared a glimpse of the Strange things merchandise created by artist Chogrin who combines fan favorite character Eleven with the monster called the demogorgon – and “Elegorgon” art isn’t the only cool thing Chogrin has created recently. Chogrin also partnered with illustrator Pakoto to create the 40-page children’s book Kid del Toro (Small books), which is inspired by the childhood of genre filmmaker Guillermo del Toro! You can retrieve a copy of Kid del Toro to THIS LINK.
Here is the information on Kid del Toro:
Introduce your little ones to new monsters in 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 fantastic and delightful childhood stories told in Guillermo del Toro’s interviews, Kid del Toro follows young Guillermo as he challenges his Abuela to stay awake late reading monster stories and unexpectedly meets his very first best friend.
Kid del Toro is the exciting first picture book from animators CHOGRIN and Pakoto, a sweet and fantastic tale inspired by visionary Guillermo del Toro’s childhood love for monsters. Parents will be delighted with this book because it will encourage their little one to be fearless (especially with things that bump at night) and to stand up straight even in the dark.
Inspired by the childhood of Guillermo del Toro, a young boy learns to love and accept the fantastic monsters who visit him at night.
This is an independently written and published account of Guillermo del Toro’s childhood experience as heard in public interviews, and no affiliation or endorsement by Mr. Del Toro is claimed or implied.
Some examples of pages from Kid del Toro can be seen below, and it seems like a fun book to browse through for all the monster kids and del Toro fans.
