Celebrating the publishing deals of Dragons Out book

On the beautiful summer day, we decided that now is the time to celebrate the fact that Dragons Out book has both English and Finnish publishers.

There's another school donation campaign to arrange (remember last autumn many companies funded the book by preorders that they will donate to schools for students to read). I'll continue the campaign come this autumn. Stay tuned. And as a reminder, share the book project with your network! And preorder either the English or Finnish version by contacting me via the contact form : ). Below the author Kari Kakkonen and illustra

You can already preorder from me using the contact form on this site. I really appreciate anyone making up their minds early on as it will diminish some of the uncertainty that exists now in Covid-19 times. The publishing date of the English book is
