About

I'm sure most authors who become parents have ideas for children's books, but I've got one that I believe is really exceptional and I can't wait to share it with you. It's called Dive into Bed, and at its heart it's a story about the power of soft things. There's also plenty of exploration, discovery, beautiful environments, and even a little bit of danger. It's a story that will spark your child's imagination and be fun for you to read together.

We hope you'll help us make this story a reality!

This campaign is to cover the time of our illustrator, Paul Davies, whose incredible work can also be found in our free mobile word game Word Legends. I hope Dive into Bed gets him the recognition he deserves, because he's incredibly talented. Continue to read through to see images from the book.

For me, the best children's books have a combination of rich, stimulating environments, imaginative creations, and problem solving driven by young protagonists. We think it's important that children's books have relatable role models for both girls and boys. That's what we're going for here, a book that'll introduce your child to something new on every page and a story full of discovery.

 A little about me: I'm an author who's currently the sole caregiver for my one-year-old son, Rory, while my wife is undertaking a PHD program abroad. Rory and I spend a lot of time reading together, and Dive into Bed has been a fun creative outlet for us.

Dive into Bed promises a unique and fun world, and the book is just one way for us to explore it.

 

Risks and challenges

We've got the time, energy, and most importantly the enthusiasm to make this an unforgettable children's book that will provide a fun reading experience for whole families. Thank you for checking out Dive into Bed and we hope you'll consider backing us with one of the options on the right!
