About A Creature - A Children's Picture Book

Project 2016-01-26 08:21:37 +1300

I have written and illustrated a children's picture book. It's a series of poems that form a narrative about a flock of chickens, accompanied by watercolour illustrations. Now I need help to get it printed.  100% of the proceeds from my pledgeme project will go towards the cost of the first print.

I loved animals as a child! But as an adult I have struggled to find any children's picture books that genuinely express natural life - most children's picture books portray human life even when the characters are animals! Dressed animals, that talk and think like people. 

My aim has been to build an appreciation for an animal without giving it human characteristics.  The story is true to how a flock of chickens would behave naturally, based on research I carried out before I started writing the book. 

The project has taken me about a year.  Painting and writing in my weekends and after work. Now it's done! But I need your help to make my creation a reality.  Please help me get my book to print. Pledge now.
