About

TODAY IS "A" WORDS DAY!

Zita's favorite book in the whole world? The DICTIONARY!!

A is for Applesauce is an appealing family adventure, with applesauce, ants, attempted arrest, angel food cake, awards, arguing, and ongoing antics!  

A is for Applesauce is the first in Arthur and Zita's exuberant Alphabet Book series. The A words glossary at the end of the story will soon make clear the meanings of all the A Words!  

My name is Julie Affleck. Writing about Zita and Arthur is fun, I really, truly, absolutely love it! To have found the illustrator, Alexander MacAdam, to completely bring Zita to life with her attitude and spunk was a dream come true. Together, we will continue Zita's story through all the letters of the alphabet - yes, even X, Y, and Z! It might be a challenge, but I see it as fun!  

We have completely finished A is for Applesauce and B is for Bubblegum (do you have a picture in your head? Arthur? Bubblegum? Trouble!), and we are working on C is for Calastrophe at the moment. I have rough drafts for D, E, and F, and I have no doubt that Alexander will continue to bring Zita along fabulously!  

Why Kickstarter?  

The funds from kickstarter will be used for marketing and getting the awards out to you! (thank you in advance) I have received wonderful feedback from teachers that want to use the book in their classroom as a teaching aid. And parents loved it. AND the kids loved it. That's what means the most to me.  

If I over-succeed my goal, I will use that money to continue writing and marketing the entire alphabet with Arthur and Zita.  

Know where I'm coming from? I'm just getting started!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges? When I get to 'x' I'm probably going to find it challenging to come up with enough words that start with x. But don't worry - I've got that covered. I already have an idea.........but you'll have to wait and see!
