H. P. Lovecraft Kid’s Book Series on Kickstarter

Writer Tro Rex and artist Eyo Bella are raising funds on Kickstarter for a kids’ book series called Littlest Lovecraft. The first book will be an adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft‘s 1928 short story “The Call of Cthulhu.” We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “We want to share Lovecraft’s works with a broader, younger audience that may have a hard time getting into the original text. It is our hope that our generation of Lovecraft enthusiasts will find our books useful in sharing their love with young Lovecraftians in the making!”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
