About this project
The Boy Who Spoke to the Earth is a tale about a young boy who asks the Earth where he can find happiness. The Earth responds and sends the boy on a journey to some of the landscapes that make the Earth most proud. In the end, the boy learns that happiness is harder to find than he expected.
This children’s book is written by surf and adventure photographer Chris Burkard, and illustrated by Disney Interactive artist David McClellan.

We can’t make this book a reality without your help. We decided to launch this book on Kickstarter because right now it’s the only way for us to get the book into your hands. We are huge on collaboration and couldn’t be more excited to involve you in the project. Hopefully this book will inspire you and all the young people in your life to find joy in the journey.

Risks and challenges
The book is still in the oven, but about 99% completed! Our number one priority is getting this book to you as soon as we can. We are currently finalizing a few design tweaks with the book, but we’ve already started the proofing process. This way we can deliver the files to the printer as soon as the campaign finishes. So barring any sort of unfortunate printer meltdown or world-wide ink shortage, we anticipate getting the book in your hands by July.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes! Everyone who backs at the $250 tier will have their book signed by Chris and David.
