Bilingual Adventures

Bilingual Adventures is a new publishing imprint formed by Adam Beck to complement the content at his blog Bilingual Monkeys, forum The Bilingual Zoo, and YouTube channel Bilingual Monkeys TV. Bilingual Adventures produces engaging books for language-loving families, both non-fiction and fiction, in paperback and digital versions.

Non-fiction books

The non-fiction books published by Bilingual Adventures provide practical, real-world support to parents raising bilingual or multilingual children, empowering families toward realizing even greater success and joy on their language journey. The first non-fiction title, released in April 2016, is Adam Beck’s Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability, praised worldwide by parents and experts in the field.

Fiction books

The fiction books published by Bilingual Adventures offer lively stories and illustrations that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. At the same time, these books serve as effective resources for promoting language development and a love of language and literacy. The first fiction title, coming soon, is How I Lost My Ear, a humorous novel in the spirit of Roald Dahl, written by Adam Beck and illustrated by Simon Farrow.

Below are a few illustrations from this rollicking adventure involving a book-loving boy, a marching band, a moody grandmother with beautiful blond curls, a long-lost hero and his three-legged moose, a dancing bear, a poisonous spider, a baby-snatching owl, a shaggy yak of a man and his snapping turtle, a herd of 144 spitting llamas—and a very large, very hungry ogre.
