Toddlers need Cthulhu!

Every now and then, I see a Kickstarter that’s too good to click away from. When I saw this one for the board book, C is for Cthulhu, I had to be part of it. My husband introduced me to H.P. Lovecraft’s works when we first met (a long time ago…), and I was immediately hooked. Seeing his monsters made adorable, and offering me the opportunity to introduce my own toddler to the cuddliness of Cthulhu and Yog Soggoth? Couldn’t resist.

The great news is that these guys hit 100$ funding FOUR DAYS IN. Amazing, right? I’m not the only Lovecraft-loving parent out there! Anyway, I’m posting about it here because now, they’ve introduced stretch goals – goals to shoot for now that their initial funding is met. And this stretch goal is amazing. For every additional $750 they get, they will donate two copies of C is for Cthulhu to a library! I love these guys!



If you’re a fan of classic horror – whether or not you’re a parent – give this Kickstarter a look and consider backing it. You’re supporting libraries, independent creators, and getting great artwork!
