Development Pitch

NEVER GIVE UP differs as a children's book because there are no other picture books teaching how to count ordinal numbers both written and numeric, while rhyming and teaching life lessons of failure and success through perseverance. The story encourages a sense of adventure and self discovery. The work instill's positive imagery and self-worth. The commerciality of my work is boundless because it takes place in a big box department store which is a perfect segue to market NEVER GIVE UP to actual department stores along with merchandising deals. It would also make a wonderful movie with lots of montage in a fantasia meets cinderella way!
