The Boy Who Tried To Touch The Sun

I wanted to create (write/illustrate) a children's book that would inspire all people.

"The Boy Who Tried To Touch The Sun" is a story of determination that emphasizes the idea of reaching for the “impossible”. Even when faced with seemingly difficult challenges, Anu overcomes them with ease as they are not as challenging as the goal he has set for himself. The general purpose is for readers (young and old) to consider what “touching the sun” means to them.

This project/book caters to ages 6-11, but has an underlying theme that can be used as a literary discussion topic for all ages.
I am raising funds for promotion, marketing, and travel. This will allow me to be more efficient at spreading my message throughout the world. 

Thank you so much for your consideration and support! This project is very dear to me, and I am extremely grateful!
