Reggie Rainbow is no ordinary kid's book! This beautiful picture book was the result of a collaboration between 12 author/illustrators-in-training aged 10 and author/illustrator Hilary Leung. Together, over 6 weeks at Story Planet, they brainstormed, created, wrote, drew and edited.
The kids who created this book did not think of themselves as 'creative' or 'writers'. Some of them had never made up a story before. They came from 4 different schools to Story Planet because their teachers thought this workshop would give them the kind of creative boost they deserved. Now their book is ready to be published into the gorgeous, full colour, hard cover book they dreamed of and all we need is your help to finally get their story out into the universe!
And looking forward...we will, with some of the money we raise, bring another group of children, who doubt their creativity, together with an author/illustrator and allow them to explore their inner storymaker.
Reggie Rainbow's Crazy Adventure is more than just a pretty and unique book written & illustrated by children. The story is one about overcoming fears and being kind even when someone isn't kind to you... a message of hope, done with humour, for today's world.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge to completing our project is really just raising the funds. With most of the artwork complete - Hilary is just finishing the cover art which we'll share with you during the campaign - and the research done on who to self publish with, everything is in place.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
