This is not your average book

It’s a book about words, but it's also a handbook for any child who wants to live a truly epic life. Join our cast of word-hungry animals as they guide kids through everything they need to know to turn home, school, and life into a learning adventure.

Designed by literacy experts

The words are curated from relevant, global curriculum lists for kids aged four to eight, with extra challenging vocabulary added to the mix. With over 200 pages of hilarious illustrations designed to make children think deeply about words big and small - from “mischievous" and "sympathetic" to “scrub" and "flush” - My Epic Life is the perfect way to sharpen the minds of young readers and make them laugh as they fall in love with words. Uniquely created with teachers, literacy experts, and award-winning Hollywood artists.

Kid-friendly definitions

It's the must-have manual for kids, tackling everything the world can throw at a young child: labelling emotions, building character, food and hygiene, basic maths, and even the future of technology. It's perfect to read a few pages every night before bed for dream-inspiring vocabulary. Kids will it to bed with them, make friends with the characters, and wake up hungry for words.

And don't forget to keep an eye out for Bogart, the hilarious larvae who crawls into everyone’s shoes, bags, and beds!
