The Supersonic Hug

Ready set, go! And go they did. In just six-short months children’s book series authors, YouTube show hosts and now brand merchandisers of The Supersonic Hug – Ron & Christine DiGrandi took their idea from a clear vision to a multimedia multiplatform reality.

In my recent interview with the aspiring couple, I asked them how did they take their plan of creating a children’s storybook, to then making it a television show and now branded merchandise?

“Christy and I have had the best time together creating something that has turned out to be exactly what we wanted – a three level platform to help children find happiness, inspiration and ignite imagination.” Ron explained. “We planned out each step by starting with creating the story we want to tell.”

Ron and Christy continued, “Once we clarified the vision, we then decided on the three platforms in which to deliver our story through. Those three platforms are: 1) our all-in-one The Supersonic Hug storybook/coloring book series being published on Amazon and Barnes & Noble; 2) our YouTube channel: Storytime with Mimi & Grandpa DiGrandi; 3) our merchandise store providing quality branded youth related products featuring The Supersonic Hug logo and story characters now selling on website.

The third platform launched this week, completing our overall goal to have the book series started with the first two published of 50 that are planned; to have the first book created into our Storytime book reading for kids featured on our YouTube channel. Each book will be created into five approximately 5-minute episodes, with one full episode of each book. All that is now completed for book 1, with book 2 currently in the studio for production; The Supersonic Hug merchandise is now available and selling on The Supersonic Hug website at

Our book series will be a minimum of 50 books beautifully illustrated in high resolution colors, with fun-

filled stories. Each book introduces childhood characters that discover this awesome new hug and share it with family and friends all around the world, bringing joy and laughter to everyone.
