MEET MONA

From the imagination of 6 year old Maddi, Mona was ‘future’ 9 year old Maddi, saving the world. It all started while walking home from Nature Camp. Maddi dreamed up Mona and Zukini, and couldn’t stop talking about it. Every day the story grew, and Maddi started sketching Mona, and writing the story ‘ME & ZUKINI’.

Description of Mona
Black hair, pony tail and bangs. Brown Skin. Sweater with cloud the says “You can dream” with a sun.

INSPIRED BY MADDI’S WORLD

Everything that you see in the book is a mix of Maddi’s world and her imagination. From her nature collections, to her books, to the Lego Mandela that took her months to complete, Mona is ‘future’ Maddi.

MADDI’S IMAGINATION BROUGHT TO LIFE

Maddi drew Mona and described the scenes in detail for the artist to sketch. Here is one example where she visualised Mona riding home on her bike, imagining ways to help Zukini, with cool air coming out of her mouth as she pedalled. It is fall after all!
