A new series of picture books for children aged 3+ is ready for take off... with Myro, the Smallest Plane in the World, as its hero!

Myro the Microlight is as mischievous, curious and prone to disaster as any other five-year-old we might know! The stories follow his exciting adventures as he settles into his new Australian home, zooming through pages packed with vivid energy, gorgeous landscapes and crazy Australian animals.

Children will fall in love with the captivating aeroplane friends Myro makes on his travels, much like they do with the characters in the ‘Thomas’ series, wanting to read their new books again and again.

Each back cover opens up to show a detailed map of where the adventure takes place, so children can follow the story as it unfolds. On it’s reverse is a colourful fact file, full of fun and interesting information about Myro and his friends.

On the inside back-cover is a detailed aircraft “cutaway”, reminiscent of the “Eagle” comic books of the 1950s and loved by generations. Also featured is the pilot’s phonetic alphabet – Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc., that children love to learn with their parents. “What does Mike Yankee Romeo Oscar spell?”

This first Myro series includes six picture books, all with different adventures and characters. A seventh picture book is also available, with lyrics for the accompanying audio CD, full of original and catchy songs.

It took British entrepreneur Nick Rose, and more than a dozen talented freelancers, seven years to create this first series, Myro Goes to Australia. The uniqueness of the books and songs will attract both mums and dads to share their children’s fun, and tempt relatives of all ages when hunting for those perfect presents.

With their gripping stories, beautiful images and irresistible characters, Myro, The Smallest Plane in the World is sure to find a place in everyone’s heart.

Each book retails at 6.99 and Myro is available from most high street booksellers.
