Lucy the chicken enjoys living at Hearty Eggs Farm. She is one of the many chickens at the farm, which is owned by Farmer Hank.  All of the chickens do their part producing eggs for their boss. Every chicken, that is, except for Lucy. Who is Lucy? Why, she’s that chicken over there, with the knitting needles.  She tries to lay eggs, she really does! With her job on the line, Lucy nervously knits.  The seasons pass, and tension builds. Lucy really likes her life at the farm. Farmer Hank is strict, and needs to make his numbers. What will Lucy do?

Risks and challenges

Fuzzy Belly is a new children's branch of Under Belly Comics, a Canadian comic book & graphic novel publishing company, dedicated to bringing you the freshest and most innovative comics from around the world.

Originally the brain child of Adam Jack & Kyle Joseph McEwan to promote and distribute their own work, Under Belly / Fuzzy Belly is now pushing forward with producing and publishing some of world's newest up and coming creator owned/independent Children's books & comics.

We follow a "Kickstarter first" method of publishing, so we will often have more than one project running on Kickstarter at a time. A challenge for us will be managing multiple campaigns at once. But delivering books to our backers will never be a problem. We have different creative teams assigned to each book to make sure they get finished in a timely fashion.

Our biggest challenge will be trying to go above and beyond our goal. $2,500 is the absolute bare minimum we can do this for. Ideally we would like to raise closer to $3,000 - $4,000 in order to put out higher quality books
