  1. Thanks so much for recommending Galunker! One note: the artwork is by Dula Yavne, not me. (Crucial.) She’s illustrating the entire book — I’m just the writer.

    This is a direct link, by the way, to the Kickstarter project:

    • Thank you for the correction. I’ve updated the post to give credit to her wonderful artwork (I love that picture with the heart—he’s so sweet in it). Glad to see you’ve already exceeded your goal. I hope you get a lot more funding in the next 28 days! This is a fantastic project and I’m glad to do a small part to spread the word.
