Guest Post from Book Island: Mum’s Jumper

It’s exciting times here at Book Island! We have just launched our very first crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. On this platform we hope to raise £6,000 for Mum’s Jumper, a beautiful picture book about grief, created for us by the talented illustrator and comics maker, Jayde Perkin. 

We feel strongly that this book will help both children and adults address the taboo of death and grief in a touching and accessible way and would love to have your support.

Between today and Tuesday 4 December 2pm GMT, we're aiming to raise £6000 towards Mum's Jumper by Jayde Perkin. Here's a quick reminder of how you can support our Kickstarter:
