Page Previews for the Final Countdown!

Happy Hump Day Love, Daddy fans near and far!

We have a special treat for you today - sneak peeks of a number of our favorite pages in the book, complete with the finished illustrations and text!!

At the time of publishing this post, we are only $1,410 away from our $15,000 Kickstarter funding goal - over 90% there, with only 72 HOURS LEFT!  YOU could be the difference in helping to get our book published - please please support us and buy your own copy of the book for only $25 to arrive in time for Father's Day!

Without further ado, here's a preview of a few of our favorite spreads in our adorable children's book about a dad and daughter panda duo! Note these pages are not every page in the book - we've just pulled out some of our favorite scenes so you'll still have lots of surprises when you get your own copy!

First we'll share four select pages from the beginning of the book - showing our little panda growing from a baby in her crib, to a toddler being silly and running around, to her first day of school, and playing on the playground as she continues to grow and grow!

We loved drawing the school bus scene - isn't it cute how the panda has her giraffe and elephant friends riding along with her? And can you spot her parrot friend with his backpack, and the catfish busdriver?

Here are FOUR MORE pages in the book from the middle and towards the end - holy cow you all are getting such an amazing sneak peek today! Now our little panda is not so little - she's a teenager being sassy expirementing with makeup, she's getting married as dad walks her down the aisle and waves her off for her honeymoon, and then there's dad as a grandpa reflecting on all of their wonderful times together as he looks over their many pictures on the wall!

Can you spot little panda's giraffe friend in his finest bowtie at her wedding all these years later? And what about the confetti showering down on her cute little VW bug as she drives off for her honeymoon?

There's lots more where these came from - the book has 15 pages in all, so we've only shared half of them here! Check it out and get your own copy for your favorite dad and daughter team in time for Father's Day! Thanks for your support, we're so close!

Have a great day!

And we're live!
