Behowl the Moon Board Book Featured On Kickstarter

By Maryann Yin Comment

Erin Nelsen Parekh hopes to raise $15,000 for a Shakespeare-inspired board book entitled Behowl the Moon. We’ve embedded a video about this project above.

The story is comprised of lines from the character Puck in act five of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The artwork was created by Mehrdokht Amini.

Here’s more from the Kickstarter web page: “Because the text is rhyming, rhythmic, and associated with a visual story, small children have lots of reasons to enjoy it. Because it’s made up of some of the best-beloved words of the most celebrated poet of the English language, anyone reading it to a child will have a great time too.”
