“Benny Lost His Blurgle,” filled with illustrations and a story told in verse, is the first children’s book release of Mesa husband and wife Patrick and Ariel Kaiser.
The book, to be released June 10, can be found on Amazon and at bookstores.
“It’s a story about a little boy who gets laughed at for making a unique noise. His father takes him on an adventure to find his lost sound and finds his own lost unique sound along the way,” Mr. Kaiser said in a release.
The book started as a fun story between the two — the concept of a “blurgle” — and evolved into a book that’s not only fun and interesting for children, but also has a deeper message for parents, the release states.
“I hope people will remember that uniqueness and imagination is not just for kids. We learn a lot of useful life lessons as we grow up, but we tend to lose that imagination and uniqueness we all had at one point,” Mr. Kaiser said in the release.
The book is illustrated by Mrs. Kaiser, a freelance graphic designer.
“While the book is designed for children, we hope it can serve as a reminder to all of us to not lose ourselves, to embrace our own ‘blurgles.’ We hope it can bring even just a little bit of joy to those who read it,” she said in the release. “We always joked about making it into a book, but now that’s it’s actually published and a thing that exists in the world it’s pretty exciting.”
