T, illustrated by Nicole Allin

Bet you didn't know T-Rexs liked tiramisu so much, did you? So do terriers, turtles, toads and toucans, and kids named Tammy and Tommy too.

Poem of the Day 6/11 - The Prince's Lament

Thanks so much for being an early backer! Really appreciate it, and hope you are enjoying the poems and pictures so far.

So today is day 8, of 100, and here is where it gets really fun. Last week, I shared all 7 of the first poems to start, right off the bat. From here on out, it's one new poem a day, and they will be delivered right to your inbox. (as well as being posted on both Kickstarter, and ChocolateChipsAndRocketShips too.)

So please continue to spread the word. Forward this email to any friends who like funny stuff, and great art! Facebook, tweet, pinterest, and all that jazz. We're on track to produce a special, one of a kind book, but we can't do it unless we hit our goal, and we still have a long way to go.

One last thing - we have a lot of great surprises in store this week, including a new video that should be of special interest to fans of Reno 911, The State, or Thundercats. So keep watching, Thanks again for your support, and keep spreading the word!

Now, without further ado, the Prince's Lament, illustrated by Adam Hunter Peck!

If there's one thing I've learned doing this project, it's that artists love to draw dragons. Any poem with a dragon in it got snatched up early. Here's one of the best, by the amazing Adam Hunter Peck. Poor piggie...

Hi Everybody,

Thanks to all of your support, we're off to a great start! But we have a long way to go. So if you have enjoyed this project so far, please spread the word! Tell your friends, post on Facebook, Tweet us up, and pre-order the book!

We have a lot of surprises up our sleeves, starting right here and now!

The Poem of the Day is Nightwalk, illustrated by Yoshi Yoshitani. Yoshi is an incredibly talented illustrator and designer, and I'm proud to have her be a part of this project!

She worked up some wonderful animation for Nightwalk, and I'm excited to share it with you!

So as a treat for all of you, here is Nightwalk, by Yoshi Yoshitani! Narration is by the wonderfully talented Ashley Kenney O'Marra, and the great music for the piece was composed by Mark Hadley.
