Mischievous dragons are causing trouble everywhere in this picture book! Features detailed and whimsical, watercolor paintings.

About this project

Dragons in the Library is a picture book that young and old readers can both enjoy! 

The story is one of mischief and mayhem when dragons invade the house!  They get into the peanut butter, under the covers, chew up the roses, and much more!   As the story progresses the accompanying rhymes ask, at last, "What do they want?!".  The dragons, of course, just want a good book to read!  (Duh!).

UPDATED 2/16/13:
The book is FINISHED!  I now have the paperbacks in stock!
I am currently waiting for the printer to finish setting up the hardcovers.

The project has been so over-funded (we passed all stretch goals!) thus far that it not only covered the paperbacks, hardcovers, and prints, but some awesome bonus stuff too!

BONUS REWARDS ARE:

BOOKMARKS ETC: Backers under $10 get one free.  Backers $10+ get all three free.  Backers $10+ will also get stickers and maybe even some buttons!

BONUS PRINTS: All backers $15+ will get one or more bonus prints!

PLAYING CARDS:
Decks of playing cards featuring the dragons can be added to your rewards for $10 per deck.  

SHIRTS: T-shirts are available with art from the book. Backers can add them for $14 each.  Please see the FAQ for details!

Risks and challenges

Since the art, text, and layout is done there is hardly any risk. Something could go wrong or be delayed in printing, but I have allowed for this by saying rewards will ship in April (when they will probably be in my hands in March).

FAQ

  • Sure. You can add them to your kickstarter or order them from me after. Simply drop me a message as to what extra items and where you will want them shipped (to you, or some as gifts to others etc). Additional book copies and prints will be discounted as much as possible for people already backing so feel free to ask me.

  • Backers can add playing card decks to their rewards for $10 each. Simply increase your reward by $10 for each deck you want. (Note if you want a LOT of decks please check with me on the timeline as the card printer I use is amazing, but slow).

    Last updated:
  • T-shirts will be white and there are 5 designs to choose from. Backers can add t-shirts for $14. SIZES AVAILABLE ARE:

    Standard: S/M/L/XL/XXL
    Kids: XS/S/M/L/XL

    I am trying to see about getting 2X or 3X sizes but this is more complicated. If you do add on a shirt (or several of them) you will be asked to provide size and style once the kickstarter ends.

    Last updated:
  • The book is 8.5 x 8.5 inches (square). I picked this size because it is an industry standard and enables the book to be available through more distribution channels. The book is 28 pages long (including the artists bio, credits and title page). There are over 20 paintings in the book (some are two page spreads).
