Seven Blue Cows is the story of a great dream: the dream of seven cows to reach the moon and the stars. It is also the story of all those who write and draw and sing, dreaming big to make their stories fly around the world. Every wish holds a lesson to be learned and a gift of help along the way. Dreams do not come true by themselves, they need our nurturing and our effort and the cooperation of many, as they are always a co-creation. Maybe they do not always take the exact form in which we dreamt them, but it's important that we try as hard as we can, with all our enthusiasm.
You may ask yourselves: what has become of the seven blue cows? Have they managed to reach the moon and the stars? The answer is right there in the book!
Who are we?
Ana Aguilera, mother of two boys, journalist, writer and creative writing teacher and Pablo Ferrer, father of two girls, childhood educator, grafitty artist and illustrator.
Pablo and I found each other because he was looking for stories to ilustrate and I, illustrations for my stories. And we got down to work!
The illustrations gave life to the story of the seven blue cows, that felt more and more prepared for the big jump. On the way we found potholes and high hills and we stoped to breathe and rethink our way. We learned to collaborate and let go of our own ideas.
We have to say that our cows speak not only spanish but also english (with the collaboration of our translator Amanda Dale) so they can run the whole world.
Thanks in advance for accompanying the challenge of the blue cows.

What are we going to do with the money?
Our goal with this campaing is to print at least 500 books. Printing and distributing anything on a small-scale for a reasonable price is tough. And that is why we need the money in advance. We will need it to print, send, pay and prepare the rewards, and pay the campaing to verkami and the taxes.
About the rewards
prints will be on A3
Notebooks, to write, draw, dream... will be so cool.
Four colouring postcards to colour and share.
We calculate that the books will be right where you are in the begining of june.
