About

Hi, I'm Samantha!  

As a mother of three children, I am proud to say that all of them grew up with curious and inquisitive minds. Their openness towards the world around them led them to never stop asking questions, and their learning took natural progressions in ways that just attending school could never give them.  

This was the beginning of my story for creating The Wonder Why Society - a group of kids with inquisitive, young minds who explore the world in their den, going on wild adventures to answer the world's biggest questions. I began this journey by writing an exciting educational adventure book "Project Grabbity". Now I want to spread their wonder by publishing this adventure!

The Wonder Books series follows the adventures of 'The Wonder Why Society', a group of kids who simply want to find out more about the world around them. In the first book of the series, Project Grabbity, the kids learn first-hand the importance of gravity, after accidently switching it off! They have to work together to bring gravity back, before the world around them turns to complete chaos.

"Inside the den...Instantly, the earthy, mossy smell fills us with such excitement, it's the aroma of adventure. Now we are in here we can achieve anything."

Now it is time to bring the adventures of Max, Blue, Leo and Hoop to life. The goal of this project is to turn our beautifully illustrated children's educational stories into a full-colour printed book.  

There is also the exclusive opportunity for Kickstarter backers to access amazing, original artwork, including character sketches, concepts and artist notes!

By supporting this project, you will not only be able to gain access to the kids' incredible world of curiosity, but also a range of amazing gifts and rewards!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Project Grabbity is complete. All the illustrations are drawn and exist as digital pdfs on our walled children’s community site. The illustrations need to be converted ready for print version and then print orders will be placed.

Whilst this is our first Kickstarter campaign, The Wonder Why Society learning community is already trading under the company name Wonder Books Ltd in the UK and we are fully operational as a business. We have ample infrastructure to deal with large orders.

All merchandise will be ordered as soon as the Kickstarter ends but we have built in ample time for all the orders to be placed, tested and shipped to you.
