Welcome to Moopertown! In Moopertown, everyone is special – in their own special way!

This fun, funny and affirming series will entertain children of all ages. In each book we are introduced to a new Mooper – Musical Markus, Nervous Nellie, Dramatic Dom and Giggling Gertie. At first they seem to have a really silly trait – Markus loves to sing… all the time, Nellie is always nervous, Dom is overly dramatic and Gertie just can’t stop giggling – but it’s these very traits that eventually transform these Moopers to superhero status!

With humorous, sweet, character-driven stories and a richly-detailed world that children will engage with, this exciting new series celebrates the idea that our differences are what make us unique, and we are all capable of being superheroes when we can see the best in ourselves.


We are really excited by the arrival of the Super Moopers series.

With Sally Rippin’s supervision, the concept for emerging readers is to produce a world full of Moopers, who all have silly traits and learn to deal with them to become Super Moopers.

Nervous Nellie seems to be nervous of just about everything, but eventually her fear that a cute little wixie would be hurt gave her the bravery to save the day.

This is exactly the sort of series that is needed for younger Australian children and I am told for each Mooper shown on the picture of Moopertown, there will be a story, so we are ensured a great and ongoing list of titles.

Welcome to Moopertown to all 5-8 year old emerging readers! I am sure you will love visiting!
