San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2010
Kandon Unlimited, Inc., bringing the magical world of Kathryn the Grape to life, today announced the launch of KathryntheGrape.com, a website that introduces the first in a series of children’s picture books focused on teaching important life lessons in a dynamic, fun, and energetic way. The 40-page hardcover 10”x8” book, “Kathryn the Grape—Just Like Magic,” was written by Kathryn Cloward and Jody Duhamel, and illustrated by Christine Winscott.
“The world is ready for a character like Kathryn the Grape, whose initial exploits with her magical butterfly friend, Maggie, demonstrate the value of helping others, being fearless, and doing the right thing,” Cloward said. “This book will delight children and parents alike with its symbolic messages, vibrant colors, and artistic details.”
San Diego residents will find a number of local references in the book, which has been percolating for some time in Cloward’s mind. Kathryn the Grape was her childhood nickname, bestowed on her by a softball coach as a play on “Catherine the Great” and nod to her tendency to wear purple.
“Kathryn the Grape—Just Like Magic” can be purchased at KathryntheGrape.com, Atlas Books, and from other online bookselling sites. One dollar from each book sold on KathryntheGrape.com will be donated to the Kathryn the Grape Foundation, which will partner with local, national, and global organizations aimed at supporting education, empowerment, and sustainability.
“We’re so excited to share the magic that is Kathryn the Grape with readers all over the world,” Cloward said. “We see her as a messenger of love who can help eliminate judgment and negativity by teaching children to love their unique selves and accept others for who they are.”
