This is Pino.
Notice the inquisitive little stare, the wagging of his tail? I’d say he’s quite pleased to meet you! You may not think or know it, but he’s been waiting to say HELLO to you for quite a while. Impatient little pup he is, rambunctious and cheeky too! He’s the first to bolt at the sight of an open door or greet a new visitor with grubby paws.

Pleased to meet you indeed. He's been expecting you...
And now that you’re here, there's so much to do!

Wondrous stories to tell, to share, to show.
But first let us bid you a friendly
" hEllo! "

Pino reminds us of what it is to be childlike. Without agenda, hungry for excitement, not yet severed by life’s institutionalised beliefs. At Helopino books, we believe there is a mischievous little puppy hiding, deep within all of us. Waiting, yearning to be let out. 

Over time and throughout life he may be scolded or told to ‘sit’ or ‘stay’, yet his barks can never truly be stifled.

We are Helopino.

We create illustrated works of fiction. Books that aim to reacquaint readers with their child-like curiosity; that teach us to play with the puppy within.

We believe in the profound power of story. That the secret joys to living can can be found in the folds of a book, that the most valuable lessons for life happen in the words uttered between page turns, that there are no such things as grown-ups (only children who forgot how to play). And through the simple act of retreating to an illustrated book, engaging in rhyme, we can learn to frolic with life again.

With our books, we acquire the readers tongue to long forgotten words, experiences, tastes.

With our books, we add a  "little pepper."

In Pino, we are reminded of what is to be childlike. Without agenda, hungry for excitement, not yet severed by life’s institutions. Pino represents that playful spirit that resides within. Though over time and throughout life he may be scolded told to "sit" or to "stay" his barks can never truly be stifled.
