Parker Jacobs, one of the creators of hit children’s shows such as Yo Gabba Gabba! (Nickelodeon) and The Aquabats! Super Show! (The Hub), has recently been awarded the OC Metro's distinguished "40 under 40" award in conjunction with the release of his newest achievement: The Goon Holler Guidebook (Sourced Media Books, $12.99, hardcover), a fully illustrated book of stories, songs, and activities.

Once upon a time, a Bigfoot named Tooba wandered into a magical land called Goon Holler. There, he found a wizard named Uncle Wiznat, a girl named Dosie Doh, an alien named Xöranj, and the goons of Goon Holler—the goofiest mischief-makers of all time. In The Goon Holler Guidebook, children will love reading about the adventures of Tooba and Dosie while trying out Dizzy Bizzy’s recipes, exploring the Goon Mines, learning to play the ukulele, reading Goon Cartoon comic strips, and much more.

Reviewers such as Francine Brokaw at Los Angeles Family Magazine are applauding The Goon Holler Guidebook as “a delightful, fun-filled journey to a magical place with wacky characters and plenty of things to do and learn.”

Parker was recently honored with the OC Metro's "40 under 40" award, which showcases innovators and entrepreneurs in Orange County, California.

They have won numerous accolades for their work, including the Fred Rogers Innovation Award, Emmy nominations, the BAFTA award, and back-to-back TCA Awards.
