Hello! Neon TIKI Tribe friends and family. It’s been awhile since we’ve posted any updates but that’s all about to change. We’ve spent the last 11 months pursuing literary agents, in the hopes of getting the Neon TIKI Tribe series published (with very little luck) but we’re tired of waiting for a literary agent to help us get to a traditional publisher, so we decided to take our series directly to the consumer.
Just “search” Neon Tiki Tribe on YouTube, and make sure to find the “Neon Tiki Tribe” channel. You’ll find our stories available in English, Spanish and Dutch Languages. Our hope is that we’ll create enough “buzz” in the industry, (views, subscribers, comments and feedback etc.) that we’ll generate the excitement, and funding, to start publishing our series “in-house.”
Check them out, and let us know your comments on either YouTube, or right here on our website.

“Team Neon Tiki Tribe”
Hello! Friends and Family of the NEON TIKI TRIBE.
An exciting event took place this past weekend (Sept 20, 2015) in New York City, at the TED “X” / FULTON STREET EVENT called “Charge.” Christian Boer (Creator of the DYSLEXIE font used in Neon Tiki Tribe books) was a speaker during the 2nd session of presentations during the day.
NEON TIKI TRIBE are the 1st Super Heroes series, to use this patented, award winning, dyslexic friendly font and more importantly the series has the potential to help so many children that struggle to read, have an opportunity to read.
Dave and Jane Thompson, along with Greg Devlin, went up to meet the Dyslexie Font Team and support their efforts. From left to right in the photo are Greg Devlin, Dave and Jane Thompson, Christian Boer and Robert Jan (business partner of Christian Boer).
NOTE- While DYSLEXIE font was designed to help people with dyslexia read easier, the average reader wouldn’t even recognize the difference on first glance. Shouldn’t Every Book should use this font?)
Superman’s 1st Issue! Spider-man’s First Web! Batman’s Beginning! Mutant Ninja Turtle Madness!
Do you go back far enough to remember the first days of the newest Super Hero or Super Heroes on the block?
Well, we here at the Neon Tiki Tribe, like many of you, weren’t around for the beginning of Batman, Superman, or Spider-Man and while we have memories of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beginning, even they started over 20 years ago.
WE THINK IT’S TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW!
MEET THE NEON TIKI TRIBE!
We’re glad you’re here to see the launch of America’s first super-heroes designed to teach children real-life lessons, in every single story, and where each book uses a patented, award winning font that has been designed to help dyslexic children read easier. Average readers wouldn’t see the difference in this font unless we pointed it out, which means that Neon Tiki Tribe books were built for all kids.
We believe that super-heroes should do more than just entertain your children. By using action packed super-hero stories, we can capture and keep the child’s attention and then deliver a message of perseverance, or hope, or sportsmanship, body image, stranger danger, internet safety and so many more.
Presently Neon Tiki Tribe stories are only available as apps and ebooks and you can get them by searching “Neon Tiki Tribe” in the apps stores, i.e. Itunes, Google Play or at Amazon.com
Elementary school teachers, please note that your school can get these apps (as of now) completely free of charge. (Homeschoolers please get with us too!). We even offer FREE downloadable “Common Core” teaching guides, lesson plans and pre/post tests from our website in the “More” link at the top of the page.
With your help we can create something positive, educational and exciting. “It’s your child. It’s your choice.”©
We have many more stories lined up with plans to write 100 stories.
LETS TAKE THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER!
Until now, super-heroes have never qualified as educational materials for elementary school classrooms.
Neon Tiki Tribe combine comic book super heroes with real life, educational values.
TIKI in Neon Tiki Tribe equals Thoughtful Intelligent Kind Individuals and we all know that the world sure needs more of these.
HOW MANY OF THESE ISSUES ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD?
TIKI BEACH BATTLE- Environmental Responsibility
DOG RESCUE MISSION-Honesty
BAD SPORT BRAAKUS & HIDDEN HUMBUG-Sportsmanship
TIA AND THE A-MAZE-ING MIRRORS-Self Image
HOME RUN PRIDE: READING WITH THE TRIBE-Literacy
RISE OF KUNATOS– Perseverance
BULLIES: PLAYGROUND PUSH-AROUND Bullying
ETHAN SPARKS TROUBLE-Fire Safety
STRANGERS: THE KU KIDNAPPING- Stranger Danger
GIGABYTES OF DISASTER- Internet Safety
Our goal is to empower 1st to 5th grade children with valuable information so they’ll have the best chance to make the right decisions, even if a parent or teacher isn’t nearby to help them out.
Also, by using fictional TIKI super-heroes and funny cartoon-like settings we’re able to engage children with serious issues, without the stories being overly scary.
When is the last time you saw a TWO BOOK BEGINNING?
AN EXPLOSIVE BEGINNING (The Beginning/Part 1) The Importance of following your parent’s advice. You’ll go back in time, to find out how Kunatos (the most evil of the Ku Tiki Tribe) winds up banished to another island and how easy it is for a little boy named “Sam” to get “off track” in life. You also see for your own eyes how “whispering” volcano gets its name. THIS BOOK IS EXPLOSIVE!
DIGGING UP ADVENTURE (Part 2) Battling Boredom Greg and his dog Sniff-Sniff visit his grandmother on “Tiki Island”and it doesn’t take long before he’s bored. But once he gets off the couch, he’s quickly on the adventure of a lifetime.
While these are separate, they represent the beginning of the Neon Tiki Tribe, the evil Ku Tiki Tribe, Tiki Island and and “a whole new direction in thinking” towards education, literacy, disabilities, books, television and most importantly your (“our”) children.
Neon Tiki Tribe:
- A super-heroes book series designed for kids and elementary school classrooms.
- A super-heroes book series launched “electronically” before being printed.
- A super-heroes book series that’s also a“Mom’s Choice” award winning series.
- Uses a patented, award winning dyslexic font.
(The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy state that 30 million American adults cannot read. Neon Tiki Tribe book series is working to help lower this number, as this is an issue that affects all Americans in one way or another.
One way we’re addressing the issue is by using a font called “Dyslexie” in all of our books. This award winning font is “un-noticeable to most people” yet will help some people who struggle to read due to dyslexia. Most people are not dyslexic, but we all probably have friends who are (Shouldn’t we at least add the font for them?).
Based on the testimonials of people who have been helped by this font, in some cases it has been a “life changing” tool for them. (NOTE- Dyslexie does NOT help everyone who is dyslexic.)
THANKS FOR BEING WITH US ON THIS HISTORIC LAUNCH!
We hope you’ll continue this journey with us, because it’s sure to be a fun adventure and it can only happen if friends and family like YOU, go with us!
