Hi! Thanks for checking out our project, let us tell you a little bit more about it...

THE STORY

Larry and Friends is a fun story, at the same time real, playful and full of positive messages.

Larry is celebrating his birthday and his friends are coming, the friends are a diverse set of animals from different places of the world. The story tells briefly how the characters end relocating and living in New York City and how they get to meet and be friends with Larry and what are they bringing as a present to Larry’s Birthday party. All of them have very interesting backgrounds and stories to share. They are funny, adventurous and unique.

MEET SOME OF THE CHARACTERS

One of the most well know friends of Larry is Pedro the "Ecuadorian Guinea Pig", that may be because he is real and awesome, please meet the "Pedros"

The other characters are also cool and awesome, please meet the rest of the gang:

All Together Celebrating!!

WHY TO GET LARRY AND FRIENDS?

I would get Larry and Friends for many reasons:

• For parents Larry and Friends would be a great tool for teaching and discussing with their children about other places in the world, exploring other cultures, other beliefs, learning new words in other languages, and to even expand their knowledge of geography. It is a great book that invites further reflections and questions.  All of these ideas are conveyed through the beautiful illustrations and engaging narrative.

• People without children find the book enjoyable or can purchase the book for friends who have children. Larry and Friends is very appreciated among adults due to the story’s many levels of understanding, humor, acts of courageous and inspiration. The illustrations are beautiful and the stories are memorable.

• Larry and Friends is a very well done work, you can see the love and the care that has been put in this project, and it is a unique collection of life stories in New York, the city of tolerance where everybody is welcome.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES?

The money goes to covering the printing cost, getting the ISBN number and the bar code, Kickstarter and Amazon fees and production costs of this campaign.

Risks and challenges
