MEWP'S JOURNEY



A whisical children's fable.

A mix of the weird and wonderful characters of a Dr. Seuss story with the arc of Joseph Campbell's mythological outlining of the Hero's Journey. An odd bird, Mewp reluctantly answers the call to adventure. He helps a crippled damsel in distress, confronts fearsome guardians of the gate, and dives into another realm. Ultimately he triumphs, transforming into a brighter being (literally & figuratively) along the way.
