*** BONUS REWARD! - We're so excited for The Coconut Years ADVENTURES series to be ready that we're ADDING a book from this series to the rewards package of anyone who pledges $50 or more for "To Catch a Monkey." This is a picture book series geared towards our younger readers. Learn more about it and see the cover art in our "Blog/Updates" section. ***
I'm so grateful Kickstarter picked my project! Let me tell you a little about it...
To Catch a Monkey is the first book in a series I've been working on called The Coconut Years. The series is set in my native country of Ghana and centers around the life of a boy nicknamed "Coconut." Each book in the series will take the reader on an adventure filled journey where they will learn values alongside Coconut. They will realize that life isn't always simple, but the choices we make shape us into our future selves.
In To Catch a Monkey, Coconut's life has been turned upside down by the illness of his father. He feels helpless as he watches his mom struggle to keep things afloat. When he can't take it anymore, Coconut escapes on a trip to the city with his best friend Esi. This excursion leads them on an unexpected adventure, and suddenly Coconut stumbles upon a way to save his father. The only catch: It goes against everything his father has ever taught him. Coconut must decide if doing the wrong thing can ever be the right choice if it will bring about a positive outcome. It's a very realistic conflict and young readers will empathize with Coconut as he agonizes over which choice to make. Parents and children alike will fall in love with Coconut and will enjoy discussing this book, and future books in the series, together.
I've already completed both writing and illustrating To Catch a Monkey. Your pledges will help me bring my project to fruition - I will use the Kickstarter funds to cover the printing costs of my first batch of books.
Look through the rewards section to find the perfect pledge for you. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. Thank you in advance for your support!
