A few months ago on Kickstarter I came across a young boy that wanted to tell the fictional story of a Polish teenager in World War II. He was wanting to tell it in a comic format, which is what initially grabbed my interest. What intrigued me even more was the prospective author's age...
What got him interested? He visited the Holocaust Museum.
Even though the story of this boy is a fiction, I am looking forward to getting a copy sometime in the next few months (possibly two, as one of my son's friends mentioned interest) and seeing what happens in this tale, as Christoper put in a lot of research. It is good to see child authors pursuing their dreams, and even better to see that someone of that generation was so moved by the museum that they wanted to do something to ensure that the dark place in our history is never forgotten and never repeated.
Let's have a round of applause for Christopher Huh. Best of luck in any future publishing endeavors!
You can hear him pitch his book at his Kickstarter.
It is available for $10.95 on Amazon.
