About

I am raising up the $400.00 to fund the illustrations for my story and to purchase the IBSN numbers for the book. This story was written in dedication to my 7-year-old son who has Cerebral Palsy. He uses arm canes to walk much like the monster in my story. I have pledged to take 10% of all profit made from my book and donate it to Shriners hospital. My son had major hip and leg surgeries there, which was entirely paid for by the hospital and those who donate to the hospital. This place holds a very special place in our hearts. Here I have included an excerpt.  

Snickety Thickety Monster

Author Krista Francis

With a curious voice, I ask, “What are those? Those things that stand so close to your toes… 

” He shyly replies, “Other monsters stare at me. These wooden arm canes are all they see. But I’m just a little monster boy who likes to read and play. I’m not all that different at the end of the day. I am smart, I am strong, and yes, I am brave. I will climb all the mountains that stand in my way. Would you, could you, be my friend? Look beyond these canes that help me stand?”

 “Yes, little monster boy, I will be your friend. Do not be shy, I do understand. Just like you, I am also unique. Take a quick look at my two webbed feet. I do like adventures, and magical quests. Who would have guessed this unlikely friendship might be just the best?”

Risks and challenges

I am very passionate about bringing children a way to relate to their own personal obstacles through reading. That way children will not be afraid of being unique. While I have personally raised up some money for the cost of the illustrations to be done, I need help with the remainder of the money needed to illustrate and pay for the IBSN numbers, in that way I can publish this story within the year. I would appreciate you all for your help and kind wishes during this time.
