The story takes us inside a young boys fantasy, wherein he imagines his teeth as a amazing playground that needs to be cleaned.
I wrote this book because I always had a hard time getting kids I nannied to brush their teeth. Eventually I started to tell them the story about Fornax the friendly toothbrush, and it worked. I`ve been telling this story now for many years, but finally wrote it down, so that I can share it with everyone.
With your support I hope to make it into a book that can shipped out to kids all over the world. The money raised will cover the illustration, printing, binding, publishing, and the fulfillment of the rewards. If we raise more money then the $7000, we can make an animated ebook for kids to enjoy.
This is how Kickstarter works: I have 30 days and I need to raise $7,000. If I don’t raise the total amount by the end of the 30 days, this project will not be funded. Your support will help me cover various expenses including the illustrations, some legal and registration fees, PR and marketing and, of course, to get it printed and shipped out.
On the right side of this projects page, you’ll see all of the different levels of rewards. Whatever you can give between $10.00 and $1,000 will help me fund this project. And for each amount you give, you get a different reward. If I exceed my funding goal, which I hope to, I will be able to adapt and publish a iPad and ebook version of the story, and also add animation.
If you are an educator and would like me to visit your classroom for a reading, please leave me a note in the instruction with your donation.
This project is very important to me and I hope you support this and share it with your friends and family.
Thank you so much,
