About the series
Awesome Animals is a children’s non-fiction series. It explores the animal kingdom to gently introduce our little ones to body diversity. Each book features an animal which is missing something that we're taught to expect should be there. But these animals don’t just thrive despite that absence, they thrive because of it.
The Awesome Animals series uses a dyslexia-friendly type-face.
With dyslexia, we often focus on the challenges - difficulty reading. But thanks to the way the dyslexic brain is built, people with dyslexia are often creative, intuitive and highly successful. In other words, those people aren't thriving despite their dyslexic brain, they are thriving because of it.

About Kelly Tills
Kelly is the creator of her own uniquely shaped family. She writes silly, funny books for kids. Feminism, inclusion, and potty humor are her jam.
Kelly’s made a game of teaching her kids how to spot bad old ideas, which has led to a family list of children’s books which support modern values. Some favorites are Julian is a Mermaid, Boys Wear Pink and, of course, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.
Kelly’s children’s stories are perfect to read aloud to your little humans, or to have your older kids read themselves (hey, let them flex those new reading skills!). The books she produces are dyslexia-friendly.
“I believe kids are fabulously weird, and their stories should be too.”
“When my first child was born, we were given an entire collection of classic books. I was thrilled to share these stories from my own childhood with my daughter, but that excitement quickly dampened as I opened them up: racism, misogyny, body-shaming, you name it. Even the young white males who are held on a pedestal are fed heart-breakingly toxic ideas. I started writing because I was tired of constantly changing words or addressing out-dated ideas on the fly.”
“You don't need to have a dyslexic brain to be a dyslexia advocate. You just need to be willing to put in a little effort so that every child that is capable of succeeding, does. It takes a village.”
