If you cross Conan the Barbarian with SpongeBob SquarePants, you’ll begin to understand this quirky all-ages series. As Wolf Boy, Monkey King and Tessi the Amazon wander through the ancient world, hijinks, magic and high-flying adventure weave their way through every volume. This madcap trio sinks Atlantis, topples the Great Wall of China, destroys the Colossus of Rhodes, get Socrates arrested, and burns down the Library of Alexandria. Few people know that most epic disasters in history were caused by these three buffoons.
Starring the ever naive and oblivious Wolf Boy, the mythical, magical and forgetful Monkey King, and the agile and powerful Tessi the Amazon (hey, she ain’t no princess!). Join these friends for a fantastical romp of epic proportions!
In the ancient times when heroes were forged from the edge of a blade, there is one hero who wasn’t — WOLF BOY!
Raised by the great two-headed she-wolf Volupa, Wolf Boy possesses extraordinary strength and speed. He’s equally naive and oblivious, as well as the kindest kid with the most loyal heart. You can always count on him to do the right thing…in exactly the wrong way.
Though not the sharpest tool in the shed, he makes up for it with boundless exuberance and a staggering lack of common sense. With each new madcap adventure, he rescues the helpless from tyrants and villains, leaving a trail of mayhem behind.
Born from a rock thousands of years ago, Monkey King is a mighty warrior made of rock….a wizard…a fun loving trouble maker…? Hmmm. He can’t remember. He’s extremely curious, crafty, strong and has the worst memory in the history of the world. He LOVES adventure, is easily bored, a good friend,and did we mention forgetful?
MONKEY can transform into anything, multiply, fly on clouds and has a magic staff that he shrinks into a toothpick and hides behind his ear. He admires Wolf Boy’s pure heart and decides to join him…since he had nothing better to do.
Reading for Inspiration
Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King, is a mythological figure featured in many Chinese legends. Most notable of these is “Journey to the West” (西游记), a Chinese novel published in the 16th century and attributed to Wu Cheng’en. It is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature.
Tessi the Amazon
Penthesilea (aka “Tessi”) is fighting hard to make a name for herself as a warrior. She decided to leave her home to test her skills and wits by looking for monsters and villains to battle. She was raised to endure all hardships, be responsible, sensible and above all, defend the Amazons and those too weak to help themselves. She is the most devoted, hard working, agile and best strategist of her generation.
Although Wolf Boy annoys her so much that she often can’t stand him, he has a nose for finding adventure, especially the sort that end in epic battles (which are surprisingly difficult to find). So all things considered, Wolf Boy and Monkey King are just the sort of companions Tessi is looking for.
