Making it count

Our first attempt at marketing a children's book
OK, this one isn't funny, but the story behind it is. We came up with the idea of writing and illustrating children's books based on the scriptures, and had a bunch roughed out.

We pitched the idea to Deseret Book. They said the drawings were cute, but the idea was "too Christian." Hmm.
