Polyp Fiction...for children

Pre-sales of our new science-adventure storybook end THIS Sunday (November 30th) at noon. Zobi and the Zoox - set on the Great Barrier Reef - was created by a team of artists, scientists, educators and designers, for children and science nerds alike!

With her home under threat from a warming ocean, Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium, teams up with a family of slow but steady Zoox (zooxanthellae).
The coral becomes gravely ill and bacteria around them begin to starve.
Can Zobi and the Zoox work together to save the day?

We have successfully reached our main crowdfunding target of $14,105 to print and post the storybook to Australian homes in time for Xmas! (International postage might be slightly later).

However, in this last 48 hours - we are now aiming to reach the stretch goal of $18,555 - which will allow us to also create an Audiobook version of Zobi and the Zoox (with the musicians Brainbeau). If successful, we will make this Audiobook available for free to all Pozible (crowdfunding) supporters!!

In addition, we have a further stretch goal of $26,705 to create an iBook version of Zobi and the Zoox (with vS Creative). In the event we reach this (slightly optimistic) target, all Pozible supporters will receive a copy for free.

Any pledges to our campaign and shares in these final hours will make all the difference...

Lastly -  a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has already supported this Art-Science project!!

“I read the first book, The Squid, the Vibrio & the Moon, to my four year old grandson and he was absolutely riveted. As soon as I finished, he demanded that I read it again. He was swept up by the story, the incredible characters in it and wonders of the relationships that have evolved.
I look forward to the series to come.”
