"The 12 Days of a Great White Christmas," is an unbelievable twist to a holiday classic. These unexpected characters give us a new perspective on the Christmas season. In this illustrated book we get to watch while sharks try their best (as many of us do) to muddle their way through the Christmas Season! Not only do we get to revel in their exploits as you sing along to the book's mixed up, reworked "12 Days of Christmas Lyrics," but after the song is done you get to learn about the sharks you just saw in the "Holly, Jolly Shark Fact Section!"

"Three Hammerheads!" (Hmmm, naughty and...naughty?)

But self publishing an Illustrated Holiday Sharknado such as this comes with a cost. We're raising funds through Kickstarter to cover our costs of production: printing, shipping, artist materials, shark wrangling, etc.

Risks and challenges

When it comes to independent projects like this one there is always a possibility for delays. However, we have worked in a buffer for our production time and are scheduled for our product delivery by early December! We will do our best to hold solid to this and we do apologize for any unforeseen speed bumps that might slow production.

We've been hard at work sculpting, stitching & knitting amazing gifts as "thank you's" for your support. We will post photos of these high quality, hand-made-stylish gifts soon! Thank you for pledging to be a part of this project!
