Urbantoons  was created in 2015 by Kyle Terrell Stokes in response to the demand for multicultural Children books. UrbanToons carved out a niche in the Children's book industry by using well-known and much-loved fairy tales, mythical stories of empowerment, historical  and real life situations that appeal to multicultural audiences.

The books not only entertain readers but the diverse images are designed to  install moral values in children and help them build self-esteem. For parents and educators looking to guide children in the right direction, these African American books are also aimed to help children enjoy  reading different views outside their immediate world in order to broaden their perspectives.


Kyle Terrell Stokes is the founder of Urbantoons  a multicultural Children's imprint.  He has personally written and illustrated over 13 Children's books.  The books all reflect his belief that Children need to see positive images of themselves in literature.
