This Kickstarter has been created to raise funds for the first printing of Larry and the Mustache, a completely new children's book, written and illustrated by Aaron Eiland.

The book will a high-quality, 32 page, hardcover edition, printed in full color and should ship by January 2016 or earlier. There will also be a digital version of the book which will be available sooner. The story is written and the illustrations are over halfway complete.

The story is about growing up and standing out, and how the things that make you different can also make you great.

Soon after Larry is born, something strange starts to pop up on his upper lip. Before anyone realizes what is happening, it has exploded into a full-grown mustache. Things are fine for Larry until his first day of school, when he realizes that the other kids are making fun of him. From there, the adventure follows Larry as he learns to make friends and manage life with the mustache.

Risks and challenges

The book is over half way completed already. Once it looks like the campaign will be successful, finishing the book should only take a few weeks. From there, it will take a couple of months to ensure the quality of the book is top notch and that all shipping information is in order. I am confident that shipping by January 2016 or even late 2015 will happen.
