Back Our Kickstarter Project!

island_friends_intro-01We’re very excited to announce that our Kickstarter Project for the Island Friends children’s book series is now live and accepting pledges from backers!

We’ve got loads of different backer rewards lined up, so there’s something for everyone – whatever you can afford. The limited edition first run will be printed and posted out to backers in November, so they’ll be in plenty of time to give as gifts during the holidays.

What are the books about?

They’re about a very little puffin with a very purple beak!  Well, yes they are, but they’re also about inspiring very young children to take an enterprising attitude to life, and to learn how to do this from nature.  We’re worried that the nation is developing a generation of young people who may not have the skills they need to be independent, self-starting, and adaptable in their changing environment and we wanted to do something about it.

We see nature as the ultimate entrepreneur, and have used nature as the backdrop for our stories for 2-7 year olds aimed at helping them develop enterprising mindsets from an early age.

So, if this is something you feel strongly about too, please click here to find out more and back the project today.

Island Friends: Books to Inspire Kids to Make Their Own Luck

This is an exciting week for us here at Lucky Towers.  On Sunday 18th August our Kickstarter campaign to fund our first three ‘Island Friends’ children’s books will finally go live.

We’ve spent the last year working on the books alongside our other projects and our jobs and we’re finally ready to go to print.

The books are inspired by the We Are Lucky ethos that you ‘Do What You Love, Love What You Do, and Make Your Own Luck’, and we reckon that the earlier young people start to  believe in themselves and their ability to create happy, successful lives the better.

We also believe that nature provides some of the very best examples of this ‘enterprising’ approach to life, and believe strongly that young people benefit from learning about our natural world from a really young age – after all, they are the ones who will be the future custodians of our wildlife.

So, we’ve aimed these books at the very youngest children, and developed a series of characters based on  natural eco-systems, including our lead character ‘Puffin Pal’ (Pal is the Welsh word for Puffin).

What we need now is backing for the project to fund our first print run, and we aim to achieve this by enabling people to ‘pre-order’ copies of the books via the Crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.

The project goes live on 18th August, and you’ll be able to find out all about the books, see the characters and pledge your support via the Kickstarter campaign page from that day.

Watch this space or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for notification when the project goes live.
