      I read this book to my fourth graders and we had a lengthy and fruitful discussion on transgenderism, ablism, bullying in general and self discovery. I recommend it highly.

      What a fantastic book. The first time a read it by myself and I was entertained and pleased by the story.

      The second time a read it to my son using my "cough" storytelling skills. This time I was completely moved by the story. Not quite sure why... a reminder of a difficult time for myself, but, at the same time, picturing the same journey for my son was really emotional. Finding his place is something special and I think your book capture it quite right.

      Thank you for creating such a beautiful and engaging story.

      Received my books and loved them! "clouds are my favorite shapes!" One of my books did get damaged in shipping, a ripping hole in box that went through the top book and ripped the do I handle this? Post office said to get back to hurry...the other 2 arrived perfectly.

      Got mine today, looks brilliant. Wish I’d gone for the deal which came with the shapeless shape though. Will you be doing those to purchase separately at all?

    12. Victor Saad 2-time creator on

      @Christopher & @Mary - That's great to hear! If you have any photos worth sharing, please do! The Shapeless Shape can be found on Instagram @TheShapelessShape :)

      Hi @Chris!
      Yep! Everything is coming along nicely. We should receive the full shipment of books first week of December. And we'll send them out within a few days of receiving. Will keep you posted along the way.

    21. Chris Toscano

      Just wondering how production is coming along and if we are still on pace for a Dec 2017 delivery.

      Awesome. Happy to share in your journey!

      Haha happy to help :)

      @Andy, good catch. That line was from an early batch of copy when we thought we could swing free shipping. But after all of the fees with lifting the first print-run, we realized we'd need to charge a little something. Apologies for the confusion there. Thanks for that catch and jumping in!

    26. Weibull on

      Looks like a great book!

      Random question - I saw it said shipping is free for single copies but the single copy pledge charges $3 for shipping. Wasn’t sure how that worked (not that the extra $3 shipping is any sort of deal breaker�)

      @steve, thank you! We can't wait for you to share it with your kids either.

      From two of my favorite people in the world (and team). David and Victor live and work inspired by a beautiful vision of creativity. I can't wait to read it with my daughter and share with friends and their children. I send a huge THANKS to the both of you (and team).

      Ugh, I could not stop myself! Had to change my pledge to 2 copies. I have to have one at home and one at work. I was just going to take it back and forth, but decided it would get too much wear and tear. Lol. Looking forward to this.

      Hi @Slyvain, the story is 32 pages long – which is a classic length for children's books. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    31. Sylvain Ethier

      Hi creators,

      How many pages for the book. Is it a long story or a short story?

      Right on, you two. "You're not trying to be what the rest of the world wants you to be, you're trying to find your fit." I love it...I can't wait to have my own copy. Barbra Bailey (Babs) Stevens
