About


All kids should be given the chance to fall in love with books—a love story that truly lasts a lifetime. That’s why we are creating an illustrated children’s book collection from the greatest books ever written. These books are classics—lauded heroes of literature that are truly timeless. Now in a format to spark a child's imagination! We call them KinderGuides.

With our KinderGuides Classics Home Library box sets we hope that children will develop a lasting love for reading and classics. In our fast-paced digital world where so many things are competing for children's attention, we want to celebrate these stories that have stood the test of time. 

This campaign is for the FIRST BOX SET of 6 classics. Future campaigns will release four more box sets, all together totaling 30 illustrated classics!  




Collection 1 brings you six of the most beloved classic stories of all time—each one uniquely illustrated and written to engage children aged 6-12.

KinderGuides are brilliantly illustrated hardbound books that make reading the classics both fun and educational for children age 6 and up. We’ve teamed up with some of the best illustrators from around the world to bring these stories to life.  

This creative collaboration springs from a shared passion for art, classic literature, and story-telling that is evident on every page.

In Collection 1 you will battle giant cyclops with Greek hero Odysseus...

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk will be adhering to deadlines and getting books printed in time. In a set of 6 books there are literally thousands of details that need to be checked, double-checked and then checked again to get it right. Then the printing part always takes longer than expected, with shipment first reaching our warehouse, then split and shipped to you, our backers. We are mitigating these risks by giving ourselves enough time to carry out each step of the process, as well as adding a few weeks for production and shipping just in case there are delays. Although delays are a risk we feel confident about our plan of action and the safety measures we have taken. We have a distributor set up, ready to ship box sets out as soon as they come in, and we will be updating backers on each step as often as possible.
