Help me publish my first picture book!
Have you ever wondered what happens the rubbish and waste we create? The people of Newville didn't think anything of throwing away items - even after they had only used them once! Quite simply, when it was out of sight, it was out of mind. But one day, with an unexpected visit from the Dewds, the people of Newville learn that saving the planet is everyone's responsibility.
'The Town That Threw Everything Away' is a fun picture book which aims to engage children in conversations about sustainability and reducing waste. The fully illustrated picture book is aimed at children aged from 4 - 8, though many adults and older children have enjoyed the books too.
To create a fully illustrated, paperback picture book.
I have already started to take the story on tour with visits to local zero waste shops, libraries and schools. However I would like to have the book in print to reach even more children.
The money will be used to hire a professional illustrator and editor to create the book and to pay for printing and admin costs.
