In the tradition of such beloved authors as Shel Silverstein, Maurice Sendak and Dr. Seuss, Mr. Poczos' project consists of more than 80 delightful poems for kids, and 35 illustrations, with topics ranging anywhere from bullying to bed-wetting.
Mr. Poczos began his writing career working with Moose International Publications back in 1998, as Associate Editor for the fraternal magazine of Loyal Order of Moose, one of the nation's oldest and largest fraternities, which at that time reached more than 1.2 million readers worldwide. He has also worked professionally for local newspapers, and in commercial printing, graphic design, playscript editing, and yes, in the writing of children's books.
Is he the next Shel Silverstein or Maurice Sendak? You can find out by taking a look at the funding website www.kickstarter.com and searching “Poetry Project for Kids.” Then, explore his new video and the unique ground-floor project that allows you to own original storybook art from his new book.
Mr. Poczos' project offers donors a wide range of trade-offs in exchange for any size donation, ranging from a free e-book or signed paperback to a lithograph... or an original piece of art signed exclusively by the artist/author.
Those who visit the website will find a highly entertaining video showing various samples of Mr. Poczos' illustrated works and design talents, as well as a main page which outlines the project more fully and how to go about sponsoring it.
Hurry, while supplies last. As Mr. Poczos puts it, “Magical things only happen once in a blue moon!”
