A SERIES TO LAUGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING, EVEN ONESELF
The Elvis Riboldi series marked a very beautiful time for me, as I was able to share the reading with my son. Every night before going to bed we read two chapters of Elvis aloud. He read one and I did the next one, and it was really funny. Elvis is a hyperactive, restless, and adventurous 12-year-old who is always getting in trouble, but he always does it by mistake. A child who does not call out for trouble, but trouble always follows him. His best friend, Boris, gifted and an expert in everything, is always by his side, sometimes putting up with the bad jokes he makes. He is addicted to inventions, and Emma is his classmate, with whom he has a good friendship, although Elvis lacks touch with her. The three of them are the main characters in the story, together with Elvis’ father, Professor Pinkerton, the father of the Lagunilla, the typical show-off child, and Mr. Lugosi, a pre-retired hippie neighbour of Elvis, who always offer them his help.
Funny adventures on two reading levels so that the child and the adult can laugh together. Where the usual topics are dealt with, such as friendship, relationships with adults and the concerns of adolescents, but from the point of view of humor. The series hooks from beginning to end, without falling into educational purposes, although it has them, but it expresses them in the way that today’s children like to learn things. It is highly recommended to get to know this character and his gang through books, but for those who find it harder to read, now you can also find him on the screen every afternoon at 19:40 in Super3 channel, and I am sure that if you like the series you will be happy to read the books, published by La Galera, and share Elvis’ freakish adventures with the family.
The series has been translated in France (Hachette), Italy (Sironi Editore), Portugal (Porto Editora), Turkey (Ideal Kitap), Poland (Czarna Owieczka), Slovenia (Kud Sodobnost), Latvia (Zvaigzne ABC Publishers) and the Czech Republic (Mlada Fronta). We would very much like to continue expanding countries with a series that, like the DIARY OF WIMPY KID, has been able to sell more than 100,000 copies in Spain, and is now reaching the screens.
Are you up for it?
