A Recent Testimonial

Great Neck North Highschool The draw of this book for me and my kids is its hybrid nature of traditional children's books and comic books. The mixture of expository text to explain an illustration and speech balloons/sound effects works really well. That's what seems to separate this project from others. The characters are so good, the world Mr. McKenna has created so vivid and full, that Banana Tail deserves the attention that other, less attractive, less quality books currently enjoy. I've read enough children's books to my own kids for the last five years to know that Banana Tail is so far above the quality of most of them. The lessons are SO worth teaching over and over again. In only the few Banana Tail books to hit stores alone, my kids have learned to be happy with themselves and embrace what makes them different, and to tell the truth when they make a mistake and deal with the consequences. After two or three readings, the kids really understood and began applying these lessons. Every children's library should, nay MUST, include Banana Tail!

Banana Tail Interview on Crucial Taunt

Crucial Taunt"I met Mark Allen Haverty on Facebook. I was heading on vacation to Vermont at the end of last Summer and really knew nothing about Vermont. Mark Allen, who writes monthly for Wizard Magazine lives in Vermont and was kind enough to tell me all the points of interest that I should see when visiting. I remembered his kindness and then saw Mark again at a New York Comic Con and reminded him that he was helpful during my Vermont visit. Well, his kindness continues as he now helps me support Banana Tail with an interview for his own Crucial Taunt website. Rock on, Mark Allen!"

Volume 2AFTER 4 years of waiting....
The ALL NEW BananaTail's Colorful Adventure "Young Readers" story book is REALLY HERE!

Banana Tail's Colorful Adventure has been a year in the making and is finally ready to be ordered through February's Diamond Previews catalogue who stock comic shops around the country and even around the world. Its ships in April but is available for pre-order through Previews right now and also available through Amazon - click here.

In July it will be made available through all the major book store chains, so if you don't see it, can't find it and want it tell your bookstores to order it. You will also be able to purchase the book through the order page on this web site, when it becomes available.

With the release of Banana Tail's Colorful Adventure a new direction in children's books has been developed. A 3D computer generated "young readers" graphic novel. This is not your Mom or Dad's picture book. Think "Finding Nemo" or "Up" with a trio of young animal friends in a jungle.

The art was lovingly created by Steve Akehurst and his 4th Armada crew, all of who are professors/teachers down at Full Sail University. Written by Banana Tail creator Mark McKenna and published in a hard cover format by Image Comic's Silverline Books.
