TRIPP ZOOME BOOKS



For anyone who DIDN'T watch the movie I wrote on the Disney Channel - DADNAPPED - (and not having kids between 8 - 14 is no excuse!), the plot revolved around a famous author who writes books featuring a super-cool teen James Bond-type named TRIPP ZOOME.

A TRIPP IN TIME, ZOOME TIME/BOOM TIME, and TRIPP'S LAST TRIP are just a few of the books my Dad character wrote featuring the self-assured sleuth. These books are big stuff and fans just can't get enough of the former dentist's crazy plots and frequent use of dental floss as a deterrent.

What's been fun since the movie's been airing is I'm getting lots of searches for "Tripp Zoome Books". Seems kids are curious how they can read the same books that inspire my teen heroes in the film. Though the plot is light and silly - one thing I'm proud of is I created teen characters who love to read. Books are important to the story and okay - this movie isn't winning an Oscar, but "Reading Rocks" is definitely one of the messages.

Maybe reality should follow fiction and I should write the books that I wrote about in the movie...

I have to say, I'm very curious about the dental floss.

Jill -
When you need to secure a bad guy - and your hero doesn't use conventional "weapons" - dental floss (mint or waxed) makes an excellent pair of cuffs...or in and keeps you free of nasty tartar build up!

Tripp Zoome rocks!! I love everything about him!! I so want to try building a Tripp Trap!! Although, I'm curious about why Tripp is so in love with himself and everything he does.

I was watching the rerun of Dadnapped on Disney Channel this morning, with my little cousins. We were all talking about how it would be much cooler if the books that the entire movie are based around existed. Otherwise, we can't really get into the "Floss" mindset, and really love this character, Tripp Zoome. It's no fun when you can only hear about his antics. We want to read it for ourselves!

I just watched the movie Dadnapped, for the 4th time and every time I wanted to read the books that the movie was built around. Too bad they don't exist. You should totally write them. That would give kids a chance to get into it more.

I so want to read tripp zoome books!! I'm watching dadnapped for like the millionth time and I'm really intrigued by the fictional book that is mentioned there! it would be absolutely amazing if you actually did write these books so that instead of hearing about tripp's antics in dadnapped, people would be able to read it. I don't usually like books like this but the tripp zoome stories seem amazing..and I really want to read them:) I'm from south africa..so if you do write these books, please make them be available in SA too:) thanks xoxoxo
Tripp zoome fan:)
