MONSTER ABC: PROJECT DETAILS
From Alien to Zombie, every page of the Monster ABC board book is illustrated, every verse is written. It simply needs to be published. With the support of the Kickstarter community, we hope to do just that.
Building on our long-standing love of all things monster related, we've created an ABC board book that our 5-year old selves would have gone nuts for. We've left no gravestone unturned to make sure the full monster spectrum is represented: Some are well-known (Alien, Ghost, Zombie), some are obscure (Jersey Devil, Krampus) and some come with a passport (Chupacabra, Xing Tian).
Whimsical illustrations combined with winky verses add levity throughout, making this board book perfectly suited to even the most trepidatious little ones. In fact, the book is built around a simple, but valuable premise: It's impossible to be scared if you're laughing instead.
Featuring tongue-in-cheek humor for adults and unhinged delight for kids, this is the perfect book to add to your coffee table collection, or to make you the coolest aunt or uncle ever. Reserve your copy today by pledging to our project starting at $25, and help make Monster ABC a reality. Anything else is just too terrifying to consider.
Please note: All graphic representations of the book and other reward products may vary slightly from the final product. But only slightly.

Risks and challenges
This is pretty straightforward, guys. Since we've already completed the creative side of this project, a super-army of Werewolves, Hobgoblins and Banshees couldn't stop us from publishing this book once the Kickstarter campaign is successful.
All Kickstarter funds will go toward the printing, distribution and overhead costs associated with the first print run of our book (1,000 copies), along with the costs of your pledger rewards. If this campaign is successful, our hope is to deliver pledger rewards (including copies of the published book) before Halloween 2015.
With the various moving parts involved with coordinating the publication and shipping of so many books, please keep in mind that delays are a possibility. We will proactively keep everyone informed if there are any unforeseen setbacks with our intended publication and shipping schedule.
Thanks, everyone! Don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions, concerns or ideas.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
