Meet the New Muses from Kokonino County from MUSE magazine
Follow the adventures of Larry Gonick's nine New Muses in Kokonino County each month in MUSE magazine for children ages 9-14! And watch out for pies!
is the Muse of Tunes and Tricks. Originally from Arizona, he keeps life in Kokonino County interesting with his flute and wicked pie-throwing arm. He can be found playing with his dog, Devil, or wherever the action is.
Aeiou is the Muse of Software. Although fluent in many coding languages, she never speaks aloud. She likes to keep her icons in order and especially hates lemon meringue in her keyboard.
Bo, the Muse of Factoids, is full of information (both useful and not). She is always happy to help out, but doesn't like difficult questions that interrupt her grass chewing. Bo is the only Muse with four legs.
Chad is the Muse of Hardware. He can usually be found in his lab, drafting pie-shield designs or building DNA sequencers out of bendy straws. Feather almost never knows what Chad's talking about.
Feather is the Muse of Plants. He spends most days tending his garden, and sometimes thinks the turnips are the only ones who really understand him. Feather has a particular weakness for doughnuts.
Urania is the Muse of Astronomy. Her head is usually in the stars, and she doesn't let pesky facts weigh her down. She does help other Muses with math problems, though, if they ask nicely.
Crraw is the Muse of Bad Poetry. He's always ready with a rhyme, unless he's out of breath from fleeing Pwt. He dreams of someday being immortalized in an epic poem - one he didn't write himself, that is.
Pwt is the Muse of Animals, though you'd never know it to watch him chase Crraw. Pwt sometimes lies awake at night worrying about abandoned pet hamsters, how to dodge Kokopelli's next pie, and why that pesky crow always seems to outsmart him.
Mimi is the Muse of Getting Along with People. She is always fashionable and minds her manners. To keep the peace, Mimi will agree with almost anything - but when things get sticky, she heads to the Kokonino Outlet Mall to relax.
