Counting, Colors & Cthulhu

Counting, Colors & Cthulhu Book Kickstarter

Counting, Colors & Cthulhu, the third in a trilogy of Lovecraftian-themed children's board books by the C is for Cthulhu team, this week cracked the top 20 all-time most funded children's books in Kickstarter history.

After an explosive launch day that raised over $30,000 in funding from the support of more than 500 backers, the new book has continued to climb the charts. Promising a beautifully illustrated, premium board book that teaches numbers and colors using adorable Lovecraft inspired monsters, Counting, Colors & Cthulhu is the latest from Eisner-nominated author Jason Ciaramella.

"In this new book, strange creators are appearing all over Providence!" says Ciaramella. "Young and old ones alike will help Cthulhu navigate through a horde of cuddly cute monsters and develop number & color recognition and counting skills in a fun and visually engaging way!"

The book features stunning, fully painted illustrations of beloved creepy, yet cuddly renditions of some of H.P. Lovecraft's most iconic creations from veteran children's book illustrator and Kubert School graduate Joshua Janes.

"There’s a great history of monsters teaching kids to count. For me, it was THE COUNT from Sesame Street (Ah ah ah), and the loveable Cookie Monster," said Ciaramella. "Kids are naturally attracted to these weird, colorful, and outrageous creatures because they fire their imaginations. Few of us remember the mundane early learning books we grew up on – not because they weren’t effective, but because, well, they were filled with the same dull things we saw around us everyday. This is one of the reasons we first created C is for Cthulhu, and why we're now doing a counting and colors book."

Counting, Colors & Cthulhu is the newest book from the team that created C is for Cthulhu: The Lovecraft Alphabet Book and Sweet Dreams Cthulhu, a Lovecraftian Bedtime Story and is currently on pace to blow both of those previously successful Kickstarter campaigns out of the water.

"The wild success of this new campaign is not only allowing us to bring an awesome new children's book to life, but to also bring back some of our most beloved products we've created over the years, including the C is for Cthulhu Rainbow Plush Toy and C is for Cthulhu Double-Sided, Blanket- Stuffed Pillow!" said publisher and project manager Tyler James. "It's a thrill to see hundreds of past backers return to support the latest launch as well as hundreds more discover the C is for Cthulhu brand of books and toys for the very first time."
