Development Pitch

I am flexible with live-action adaptations, but also animation is welcomed, as I have noticed the extensive use of the latter. Every detail explained in this book should be brought to life (character appearance, clothing, and behavior) and there should be authentic history conveyed through the story. Viewers will love to watch an action and mystery story during a historical period and I know I have created the best way of conveying that very notion. For the age target, 10 and up, I feel the story morals of working hard and finding your place in the world will prepare the viewers on preparing themselves for their future. All these amazing attributes packed into one great story, I know it will succeed!
