About

The Project

Children. They make me feel stupid. Often. I am constantly in awe at what small minds make of the world and the things that stick to their character. I have blended together a passion for writing and a love of big words, with the wonderful children in my life, in a large jug of muse-juice. They have been my inspiration. 

This book plays with big words. Obscure words. Outdated and forgotten words. Fun words, all spliced together in a delightful story. Readers will find a thrill in the testing nature of the polysyllabic words and their pronunciation. And if anyone takes away and uses even one of these wonderful words, i’ll be over the moon.

The Story

Mr Coelhinho the rabbit has a fear of predators, but he lives safely underground in his snug burrow. One day, the postman informs him he has a parcel at the Post Office. It can be seen a distance away, on the far side of a summer field. Rabbit must embark on a frightful adventure, as he struggles with his phobia of being outdoors and becoming somebody’s lunch. However, his fear of other animals disappears as he learns they eat things other than rabbits.

A small glossary sits at the bottom of each page providing word definitions at a glance. I've blown them up for you here.

Rabbit's Sesquipedalian adventure is a rhyming story. The words are big, but you'll get the better of them. Here's an excerpt from the book:

The creators

With a background in design but a love for words, this is my first ever book. I have spent countless hours learning new words and painfully piecing them together in what I hope will be an enjoyable read. 

The artwork is by Edson Tavares from Brazil. We found each other on deviantart and it was Ed’s perspectives and child friendly style I fell for. Every scene makes for an eye-catching read.

The goal

We have begun the artwork and aim to be competed by April 2019. Even earlier if we can manage. Your backing will go towards the printing of the book, paying the artist and employing someone brave enough to edit the story.  

Your support with any one of the rewards will be greatly appreciated.

Risks and challenges

The only challenge we have is to meet the reward goal. The book is written and Ed is sketching away on the remaining pages. Pending reaching our goal, nothing short of an apocalypse stands in our way.
