Belfast based company Little Thunder Co are looking for your help, in making their book series about an inquisitive cat come to life.
The series of books follows the adventures of young Chalky, a stray cat discovered by one of the creators behind the story. Chalky appeared in Tim Potter’s life in 2002 when he was found sleeping on a plastic bag in his friends shed. Tim ended up bringing the 6 month old tomcat home with him.
The first book of the series is called ‘Chalky and the New Sports Car‘ and follows the friendly and adventurous feline, as he encounters a new car whilst exploring the neighbourhood. The series is marketed for 6 months to 5 years old, when children are at their most inquisitive wondering the how’s and whys of life making this book ideal for a bedtime reading adventure.
The pages contain huge vibrant illustrations of Chalky stalking and lazing about whilst the short story, which is created by Tim’s father, Stanley is written in an array of large typography, all fun but importantly easy to consume for the young reader.
The project is currently on Kickstarter and needs £10,000 for Chalky to happen and for each pound that you donate, you shall receive a little treat for your kind support. The lovely people at Little Thunder Co, are offering eBooks and hardback copies of Chalky as well as prints from the story.
Show your support and help out with this great idea, because we all know there are never enough readers in the world and reading as a child is a magical experience that we all remember.
