According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, a Hungarian freelance illustrator came up with a brilliant idea. He wants to make magical story-books for 3-5 year old kids, in which daddy fox talks about the big bang and string theory with his son. The book aims to intrigue kids and raise their interest in a fun way.
Róbert Farkas is a Hungarian freelance illustrator and graphic designer, whose hobby is astrophysics. His hopes that his fox-tales will lead to conversations between parent and child about the fundamental questions, like where we come from, what we are made of and where that substance is coming from.
Since this is a story-book, beautiful illustrations form a key part of the idea, so he came up with the idea of friendly foxes talking about the wonders of the universe. He worked on the first book of the three-part series with the acknowledged astrophysicist, Péter Raffai.
The aim for Róbert, who was actually inspired by his own daughter, is not the teaching of the kids, but intriguing them and answering questions that might arise in their heads. The first book consists of ten pages starring daddy fox and his son, who talk about the big bang and string theory.
The illustrator tries to collect money on Indiegogo to make Clever Fox’s Tales about the Universe possible. The introductory book also touches upon the topic of particle physics, but the other two books would also touch on the topics of black holes and light speed, naturally, in a fun way.
The books will be on sale for 25 dollars and the designer plans to start deliveries in December 2016.
