About

Friends come in all shapes and sizes!

This is a story about two best friends, Ben the little Cyclops and Sid the Snail. They are the main characters of my picture book "The Best Day Ever".

The Two Best Friends
The Two Best Friends

Ben and Sid have a lot of fun together exploring the world, until one day strange things start to happen to the little boy.

To help him, Sid the Snail takes charge by becoming a detective; Snailock Holmes. After thoughtful investigation, he discovers that the little Cyclops can't see as well as he used to and he will require eye glasses.

So, the mystery is solved! After a quick visit to the Optometrist everything gets back to normal, with the prescription of eye glasses for Ben.

For them every single day spent together is "The Best Day Ever", because there is nothing like true friendship!

A Sincere Thank you!

I truly appreciate everyone's support!

Please, read about the project, check out the great rewards and make a pledge.

Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing! None of this would be possible unless we reach the funding goal. So, please, share, spread the word and tell your family and friends.

Where will the money go?

55% - Will go towards the printing costs of the book ( I need to meet the bulk minimum printing requirements) Also, I am planning to go with the option of offset printing, which is the highest quality printing available. Every children's book on the shelves of your local store was printed offset, because the saturated colors and authentic feel of offset printing can't be replicated by digital printing process which use laser toner instead of ink.

25% - Will go towards scanning, custom layout (inside, front and back cover) typography and preparing files for printing the book with a book designer.

10% - Will go towards the shipping cost from the printer to me, packaging and part of the international shipping .

10% - Will go towards Kickstarter fees and payment processing fees.

Risks and challenges

The illustrations are completed the supporting text is written. Basically, I am ready to go to the next step...Publishing!
Even though it is a low risk project, like any new project may experience some obstacles and delays. If anything unforeseeable does happen along the way, I'll make sure that everyone knows about it and what am I doing to fix the problem.
So, hop on, join me on that journey!
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project!

Annie :)
