Maury C. Moose is a children's book with puns, rhymes and quirky animal characters written for parents and kids to enjoy together!

The Story of Maury

Maury Chris Moose has his worst nightmares come to life when G.R. Inchworm invades Jingle Bell Block. In order to save his Christmas-loving forest, Maury and his friends must band together and prevent the construction of the new Bar Hum Bug. Will a parody of the 12 Days of Christmas provide Maury the guidance needed to clean up Forest Noel and run G.R. Inchworm out of town? Or will the bugs litter the forest with their New York Slimes newspapers and their Pus Weekly magazines?

Where the Funds Will Go

Your support allows me to not only make a better book, but it also helps me get the book in front of more readers.

As I mentioned in my video, a survey conducted by Harris Interactive, found that only one in three parents read bedtime stories with their children every night, and 50 percent of parents say their children spend more time with TV or video games than with books.

Statistics show that children who don’t read well by the end of third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school than proficient readers.

Your backing is essential to helping me reverse these statistics and inspire a love for reading at any age.

More specifically, your funding will help me with the following:

obtaining ISBN numbers, book formatting, and additional costs associated with getting the book into various bookstores
U.S. copyright registration
proofreading
line and copy editing
getting the book reviewed by professional publications
printing hardcover and paperback copies in bulk to save on printing
drawing additional pictures of Maury and his friends to help liven up the book
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The full manuscript is complete and ready to be sent to an editor. The next step is to finish all the artwork and to finalize a deal with an experienced publisher.

Your support will allow me to overcome the financial obstacles that have gotten in the way so far. With your help, we can bring Maury C. Moose to life!
