Development Pitch

Many ancient cultures around the world believe that our forefathers came from the stars. These include the Aztecs, Mayans, Egyptians, Hindus, and the Chinese—to name but a few. Several Native American tribes believe that man did not descend from the stars but arose from the earth! The American Indians tell of races such as the Ant People, Lizard People, and the Sasquatch (Bigfoot), living among humans. Lesser known is the legend of the Mole People—not referring to the homeless people living in the sewers of New York City. The Native Americans tell tales of man-sized squirrels and of talking chipmunks. Go online, and you may come across an article written on August 1, 2009, in the Weekly World News. It tells of a story of Mole People living twenty miles beneath the earth—twenty miles! We’re not talking sewers here. A tunnel was discovered in Washington State. Apparently, NASA discovered the tunnel and is doing a cover-up! President Bush handled the situation, though communication was very difficult with the race of Mole People, for they can only speak an old Navajo dialect. Chipmunk-Girl: Last of the Mole People is a story of the Mole People exiling two of their own to the surface world and the sole survivor, their daughter. Whether this book is just another fun-filled fantasy or a story based on actual real-life events, I’ll let you decide. What if the legends and stories are true . . . What if? Thorpe E. Wright V, tells the Legend of Chipmunk-Girl: Last of the Mole People.

Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, it mostly does. The only thing is that, since the book is a fantasy, it shouldn't be categorized as being based on a true story.

Draw of Story

The initial friendly relationship between the farmer and the chipmunk-girl.

Possible Drawbacks

There are too many flashbacks and references to past events, which could be inserted into the plot in a more organic manner.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES A LITTLE BIT ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The subtext of prejudice and racism, and the learning that when we get to respect the differences, people can surprise us and open our minds.

Fanbase Potential

Possibly. Since it is a love story and it has an interesting main character, it might attract a large audience.

Awards Potential

Yes, mostly awards concerning fantasy.

Envisioned Budget

MEDIUM BUDGET

Similar Films/TV Series

IT REMINDED ME OF POCAHONTAS AND TWILIGHT, FOR THE CENTRAL LOVE BETWEEN TWO CULTURES. IN THESE TERMS, IT COULD ALSO BE COMPARED TO THE SERIES OUTLANDER.

What’s New About the Story

The central character who comes from a species completely unknown to humans. It could become even more unique if her universe was more explored in the story.

Lead Characters

The lead character stands out for being a brave young girl, challenged by a world that is entirely new to her. The farmer Frankie is a complex person, who suffers from a sentiment of inferiority. He is very good, but he is also prone to committing mistakes, as a normal human being. His son John is very charming, attentive and gentle, a person completely open-minded to the new.

Uniqueness of Story

Not yet. Even though the main characters are charismatic and compelling, the story is very simple and sometimes too innocent in the way it treats themes like prejudice. I believe some dialogue could be improved and the conflicts between the main character and her "adoptive family" could be more developed. The universe of the Mole People could also be more explored in the story, giving more solidity to the existence of this interesting species.

Analyst Recommendation

CONSIDER

Justification

The book should be considered because the story has potential and the main characters are interesting and charismatic. The fact that the narrative is basically centered in prejudice and coexistence issues also makes it very relevant nowadays. However, some things could be improved. In terms of writing, there are still some typing errors and passages that could be improved in a revision. There are too many flashbacks that sometimes drag the narrative and too many references to past events, that could be included in the story in more organic ways. I also felt that the Mole People as a species could be explored in more detail, which would make the story even more interesting in terms of fantastic elements.
