Goodnight Loon puts Minnesota spin on classic children's book
Some of the things that the narrator says good night to include a hungry raccoon, a tater-tot dish, some food on a stick, and seed art. Donations start at $10 (well, you can donate $1, but if you want the book, you have to start at $10). The project has 19 days left to reach $3,300 goal. Currently it's at $242.
The campaign, managed by artist/illustrator Nathaniel Devauer and author Abe Sauer, will also be used to raise funds for a few very Minnesota charities. Some purchasing packages allows folks to donate their book to the Wee Reads program at Children's Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota, and 25 percent of the total proceeds raised will benefit the Audubon Center of the North Woods.
Contribution thank-yous are pretty darn Minnesota in flavor as well, and include things like book dedications from Garrison Keillor, Jesse Ventura action dolls, and even a penned and illustrated letter addressed to your Mayor concerning any potholes on your street.
