Ten flabbergasting facts from the making of our extravagant new adventure, Kingdom of You.
Light the candles!
Wait a second – did someone say BIRTHDAY? Only the most exciting event in the whole wide world! There’s cake, and piles of presents, and cake, and a bunch of your favourite people all in one place. We’re bouncing up and down just thinking about it.
So we decided to make The Birthday Thief, a new book all about this momentous occasion. Where the story magically changes based on a kid’s birth date. And to show you why it’s the perfect gift for any little one, we’ve unwrapped a corner. Just the corner, we promise…
–See the book
1. Your child will meet a different Moon Maker dependent on the day they were born…
In the story, the child visits the Moon Makers: 31 hardworking friends who rebuild the moon each month once it’s waned to a sliver. Your little one meets whichever Moon Maker matches their birth date.. Will it be the Orbit Expert, the Moon Face-Painter or even the Head Astronomer?
2. …and different characters depending on the month they were born.
Characters from Months’ Court help your little one on their birthday hunt. Its rather eccentric residents include Queen January, Lord June, Colonel March and Lady April. And their brand new friend pops up again at the very end of the story – on a personalised birthday card for all to admire.
3. They’ll spot themselves everywhere!
As with all our books, you choose a hero character that looks most like the child you’re buying for. Your little one will spot themselves, and their trusty party hat, in even the tiniest illustrations.
4. The little details will make their day.
The Birthday Thief is basically a real, actual birthday disguised as a book. Which means there’s bunting with your kid’s name on it, a big birthday card made especially for them and many more birthday surprises!
When you create their book, you can add an extra special birthday message which’ll feature at the very start of the story. So they’ll always be thinking of you when they go on their birthday adventure… N’awww!
