Oh, and the person doing the illustrations? Is William Tallman, one of my favorite cartoonists and the creator of Reptilis Rex, the very first comic I ever wrote about here. This is a powerful group of people banding together to create something with an important message. I'm sure it'll be a blast to read, as well... these guys wouldn't make a book without having tons of fun with it, which translates into fun for the audience when they get to read it.
There's just one problem: The campaign has just over a week left, and is just over a quarter funded. That means there's a very real risk that The Best Book will never be completed, which means that I may never get to read it.
If you're interested in children, literature, and the future of our civilization, maybe consider popping over and tossing some money their way? Future generations of children literary geniuses should thank you.
