Meet Kylie the Crocodile, who lives in the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris.
She is the star of a brand new children’s book, which I wrote and which Lina illustrated. We’re self publishing the book – and I’m very glad to say the Kickstarter succeeded in just nine hours!
The concept is based on a true story: that of the elderly woman who released a crocodile in the canal a few years back. She admitted it right here on The Earful Tower podcast.
We used that setup as the basis for the rest of the story, where we imagined how a crocodile grew too big for a Paris apartment, how she was released into the canal, and then what a crocodile would get up to if she lived in Paris.
Her life involves a lot of discrete people-watching during the day, and plenty of Paris sight-seeing during the nights.
Today’s podcast episode is me and Lina telling the story behind the children’s book and how we made it.
You can listen to it here.
Now, if you want a copy of the book, click “buy now” below and you’ll receive the book by Christmas.
