A New Hero for Kids of All Ages!

The Adventures of WonderBaby from A to Z

by Oliver Chin and Joe Chiodo

San Francisco, California-August 15, 2005-Immedium, Inc., proudly announces the publication of The Adventures of WonderBaby from A to Z , written by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Joe Chiodo. This cute board book features the funny antics of an energetic infant whom kids of all ages can readily identify with. But while WonderBaby transforms into both familiar and unique creatures, he cleverly teaches children the alphabet at the same time.

Faster than a speeding bulldog, more powerful than a "loco" mole, and able to leap tall building blocks in a single bound...comes WonderBaby!

Like attention-getting infants everywhere, this tyke displays a growing collection of abilities. But what makes WonderBaby unique is that he literally embodies all the powers of the wild kingdom. For every letter of the alphabet, WonderBaby dynamically transforms into a different animal with a special super power!

Illustrating a rainbow of humorous scenes from A to Z, WonderBaby changes into a zoo-full of creatures, from itty-bitty insects to mammoth mammals. Crawling, flying, swimming and smiling, WonderBaby demonstrates the sensational and surprising experiences that all babies share.

This colorful board book will delight both toddlers and their parents, who will instantly recognize WonderBaby's endearing qualities in their own growing children. Adults will enjoy rereading it too, since our amusing hero will jump off the page in vibrant illustrations by Joe Chiodo, who has been called a "legendary talent...recognized for his stunning painting achievements for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Wildstorm." Cinescape magazine has praised Chiodo's talent for "lush, colorful paintings filter the characters and their animation-inspired designs through his own unique viewpoint."

Learning the alphabet has never been so much fun. Especially with an amazing new character who has a bright future of continuing adventures ahead of him.
