The Golden Child – A children’s story about a heroic mother



A beautifully illustrated story with a fresh perspective, where it's not a prince or fighter tracking down pirates. It’s a mother.

Artistic illustrations and a clean, classic layout help bring to life the story of a family with two children – one of whom happens to have gold skin. When the child is discovered and kidnapped by greedy pirates, the mother sets off after them, rescues her child and escapes through a magical lake, which takes them back to their family.

Who will enjoy this book? 
Noemi Gobel the writer behind The Golden Child, believe this story will fit all children above the age of 4. That’s how old my daughter is, and she keeps asking to hearing it again and again :) The story's language is simple, clean and accessible: making it a good choice not just for native English speakers, but also students of English as a second language.

Velina Parapanova, the fantastic illustrator and graphic designer behind The Golden Child, planned the book’s layout with parents in mind: all illustrations are on the right-hand side, so you can sit with your child next to you while reading, and they can see all pictures comfortably.

What's Mothertales?
Originally, The Golden Child was the first of a collection of children's stories called Mothertales: simple stories where mothers take the spotlight. 

…We also got picked as a Project We Love by Kickstarter, which makes us feel just that more special inside ;)
