Inspector Pancakes Helps the President of France (Solve the White Orchid Murders) is an exciting new children’s book which should absolutely not be read by children! Or most adults, for that matter.
Luckily, it is a scientific fact children cannot read small print! The large print story is for the kids, the small print is for YOU!
Written by Karla Pacheco and beautifully illustrated by Maren Marmulla, this 18-page atrocity follows the adventures of an adorable dog helping the President of France solve a series of horrific murders. At least it does if you’re an adult. If you’re reading this to a child you’ll be learning terribly inaccurate things about France while a dog in a hat looks for a croissant.
The book includes bonus Inspector Pancakes art from Jeph Jacques, Leia Weathington, Kate Leth, AND MORE! In addition to the book, rewards include a cute Inspector Pancakes tote bag, a “Friend To Little Dogs” medal, and a cut-and-sew Inspector Pancakes stuffed animal! Arf arf!
Cartoonist Evan Dahm needs your help to print his illustrated edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the original book written by L. Frank Baum in 1900. The book is in the public domain, and we’re printing it in a fancy hardcover edition! Evan says:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a beautiful, dreamlike book, and it’s very different from the adaptations that are more widely-known. In the illustrations, I’ve tried to emphasize the strange atmosphere of its setting, and the sense of being lost and overwhelmed by an otherworldly place. I made almost 100 illustrations for the book: 24 of them are full-page illustrations that begin each chapter. The rest are spot illustrations that emphasize the characters. For the past year, I’ve been publishing this process online at Baum by Dahm.
These books are going to be gorgeous, and the Kickstarter campaign is your opportunity to pre-order one–you can even have it signed by Evan. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is live on Kickstarter now through November 6th!
A documentary about building the biggest thing ever. Coming in 2015 with the help of the Kickstarter community.
Twelve men have set foot on the moon, and getting them there cost $25.4 billion dollars. The last moonwalk ended more than 40 years ago. Two men, Michael and David, are dedicating their lives to creating the next moonshoot for humanity, and they think they can give us permanent access to the moon for less than a billion dollars.
We’re filming their journey to build an elevator to space.
Our Kickstarter campaign is live! Funding through October 23rd.
