The Dragon and the Princess
What is "The Dragon and the Princess?"
"The Dragon and the Princess" is a children's counting book that tells the story of a dragon family and a princess as readers count from 1 to 10 and back down again.
How did "The Dragon and the Princess" come about?
It all began as an idea, carefully incubated, until it was strong enough to break out of its shell.
Next came the words, written on paper, carefully read and reread, until all was perfect.
Then came the pictures, line by line, elegantly drawn and carefully crafted.

Why is this project on Kickstarter?
We need your help to help cover printing costs. In order to get an economical price on printing the books it is necessary to order a large number of books. Many of the funds set aside for the project have gone to covering production costs, paying the illustrator, copywriting the book, ordering and registering ISBNs, paying the author, and to cover a portion of the printing costs. In order to get this book done in time for Christmas we need more help to cover the costs, and that's where you come in. With your help we can get this printed and into your hands by Christmas!
How will we know what is going on?
Updates will be posted daily throughout the campaign and then at least three times a week after the campaign is completed until all rewards are fulfilled and shipped.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk being faced by the project is shipping delays. The books are being printed in the United States and with shipping taking place during winter, there is a potential for delays.
The next risk is printing delays associated with formatting and print preparation.
Both risks are being planned for with plenty of lead time incase there are delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
