Meet Sue Hendra – Author of Supertato

Meet the wonderful Sue Hendra, who writes and illustrates the amazing Supertato books with her partner, Paul Linnet. I had the chance to ask her a few questions when were both working in Netley Marsh School on Empathy Day – 12th June.

We both had a great day telling stories to the children and talking about empathy and how to understand other points of view by reading books and inhabiting the characters

Get the hilarious book, Supertato here in the UK

Pandora – My special Limited Edition Picture Book – Are you curious?

Pandora is a special limited edition picture book that I am creating on the Kickstarter.com crowdfunding platform.

By pledging to support Pandora on Kickstarter.com, you will be helping me to create this picture book, that I have been wanting to make for a long time. In return you can be involved with the whole creative process and receive a signed, numbered, limited (only 250 copies) edition, sealed curiosity package – including book with protective warnings, inspirational poster and a sealed message of hope from Pandora!

Why haven’t I made this book before!

I’ve been telling this story in schools for years, honing the words and the pace of the story. Children love it – it’s a little bit scary! They always ask me where they can get the book, but the thought of going through a three year process with a traditional publisher has always put me off. In the meantime I have discovered the joy of making books myself and the fun and excitement of Crowd Funding

What am I asking you to do?

Have a look at the video to get an idea about this project, then got to The Pandora KickStarter Page. Have a look at all the reward levels and choose how you would like to pledge. You won’t be charged immediately, but in the week after the campaign is finished. If, even after the campaign ends, you want to change your mind, you can. However, your pledge helps me reach the funding the goal. The goal is all or nothing, so you can see how your support is vital.

If you’ve been following my videos over the years and feel you’ve had value from them, then this is a great way to support what I do and get something very special and exclusive in return.

Is this the scariest picture book ever?

Possibly – let your curiosity lead you and find out!

Go to the Pandora Kickstarter Page, choose a reward and make a pledge!

Don’t hesitate to ask me questions.

The Special Edition sealed package. Book with warning bands in sealed envelope with warning stickers and edition number. A “handwritten” message of hope from “Pandora”! and a beautiful inspirational poster to remind you of the lessons learned by being too curious.
