What's It All About?
The Book People is the story of one girl's fantastic journey. Emily, the main character, doesn't like reading. Because when she reads, she gets bored. When she gets bored, she gets hungry. And when she gets hungry, she is reminded that she isn't like her friends because she has Type I diabetes.
A chance encounter with a magical character, one of the Book People, draws Emily into books in a very literal way. As she adventures through one book after another, she learns how wonderful books can be. When she emerges at the end, she has a new love and appreciation for reading and how it can be part of her life.
About the Author & Illustrator Mary Grace Boyd:
I began my work on this project at the beginning of my senior year of high school. I am passionate about this project. It combines three of the things which I love the most: reading, writing and painting! Next year, I'm off to college where I hope to pursue my growing interest in writing and illustrating.
Thank You John Boyd for the wonderful music that accompanies my Kickstarter videos and Karen Stratford for helping me with the bookmarks!
Risks and challenges
As author, illustrator and publisher, I am responsible for a lot of moving parts in this project! While I am working to a schedule (I love schedules!), I know that you have to expect the unexpected (is that even possible?). If things come up that might impact my delivery, I'll let you know right away!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
