Who's the green, happy-go-lucky, brave and loyal soul always ready to help a friend? Gumby! This much-loved claymation hero and his spunky sidekicks (his best pal Pokey, the free-spirited Mermaid Goo, Prickle the dinosaur, and the troublesome Blockhead bullies) are back. Chronicle Books Gift and Children's divisions join forces to bring back everybody's favorite bendable buddy. Now kids can pop Gumby and Pokey right out with two delightful foam-covered board books as they learn simple concepts. And Gumby's Circus will have little ones stepping right up to read from this whimsical picturebook that features a small Gumby figurine as part of the fun. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo also dance across the pages of an exciting new line of stationery and gift products as well. Don't be a blockhead and the last in welcoming Gumby back where he belongs-in our hearts.Art Clokey's step-daughter Holly Harman grew up listening to stories about Gumby and helping her parents make sets for the popular TV show. She now works as a graphic designer and writer and lives in Northern California.
