About

Who is Merle, and what is his goal?

The Tidy Moose is a simple story about a moose named Merle, who shares the personal growth benefits of keeping the world around him tidy.

It is no secret that clutter adds stress to our lives and raises levels of anxiety among adults and youth alike. Although sometimes the process of tidying can be less than enjoyable, the benefits that come with it far outweigh the annoyance of doing the task.

Merle wants children to go begin their life on the right path, with higher productivity and lower levels of stress, & anxiety.

Learning doesn't have to be boring

The sooner children develop the habits of keeping their surroundings tidy and organized, the better off they'll be - especially in their learning environments. So why not make that into a fun, lighthearted lesson? That's where Merle comes in! His goal is to teach the benefits of tidying without it seeming like he's teaching anything at all. Every young child loves story time, and every parent loves when their child is their best self. Win, Win!

Rewards

I've kept this very simple, to keep the book affordable and shareable, giving everyone the opportunity to be part of bringing this project to production. You can order 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 copies of the hardback version of The Tidy Moose at a rate that will only be available to Kickstarter backers. Also, domestic shipping is on me for single copies (To Canada).

 

 

Risks and challenges

I've done everything possible to minimize delays. I'm working with a very reputable company, with whom I have a great working relationship.

Like anything in life, there is always a chance of hitting a snag or two along the way. However, the book is completely written and illustrated, and the files are on their way to the printer as we speak. All Merle needs now is you!
