Funding Unsuccessful

This project's funding goal was not reached on May 8, 2013.

A series of fantastical books about science. The planned books are: Gears and Motors, Food Science, and Ecosystems.

About this project

In the mystical land of Halyver, magic is a fact of life, and science is considered a crackpot theory. Meet the crackpot in question:

Book one: Quark and the Airship Pirates

Follow along as Quark learns about gears, planes, airships and engines from his friend Nellie, leader of the local air pirates.

Book Two: Quark and the Web of Life

Marvel at the interconnected web of life in the forest and beyond as the Brightwood elves show him how ecosystems work!

Book Three: Quark and the Great Cake Incident

Taste some delicious chemistry as he learns all about kitchen science from the gnomes of Mint Vally Veil! (and even try some kitchen science at home with the included recipes!)

Book Four: Quark and the... TBA!

This one will be chosen by one of our donors!

Thank you so much for helping make these books a reality!

Risks and challenges

The most likely problem for this project will be production delays. Life happens, computers break down, people get sick, but it's nothing that can't be solved by just getting up, tackling any problems with technology, getting better, and just keeping at it.
