Learn About Our Project:

UPDATE: Thank you, wonderful backers! You hit our funding goal Monday night! And now we have a bunch of fun stretch goals!

$26,000 - SUPER-STICKERS! If the funding hits this level, we'll supersize the stickers that come with all physical rewards, creating 6"x9" sticker sheets that feature multiple peel-off stickers of disgusting things drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa. UPDATE: You hit this goal! Consider the stickers SUPER-SIZED!

$28,000 - GREG EATS BANANA WITH KETCHUP. Yep. If we hit $28K, Greg, Tak, Jessica, and Jane will each dip a banana in ketchup and take a bite. And post the video. Because that's the way Team Disgusting rolls. UPDATE: You hit the goal and we ate banana with ketchup! Check out the disgusting videos here!

$30,000 - THEME SONG! At this funding level, every backer will get an mp3 of an original "ABC Disgusting" theme song written and performed by the great singer-songwriter Jane Lui, whose incredible work can be viewed here: http://janelui.com and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnqRAvOaRyI UPDATE: You hit the goal! Jane's making the song!!!

$40,000 - ANOTHER BOOK! At this level, every backer will get a digital copy of a WHOLE 'NOTHER CHILDREN'S BOOK written by Greg and illustrated by Tak with glorious black-and-white art! This new book will be KAIJU CLUBHOUSE, a chapter book in which the ABC DISGUSTING kids hunt monsters -- and get the surprise of their lives! Check out the gorgeous promo art!

KAIJU CLUBHOUSE, a chapter book with black and white illustrations that all backers will receive in digital form if we hit the $40K stretch goal!

Welcome to ABC Disgusting, a children's alphabet book about disgusting things written by Greg Pak with art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, and letters by Simon Bowland, the art team behind The Princess Who Saved Herself and Code Monkey Save World.

I bet you can guess what "S" is for.
I bet you can guess what "S" is for.

ABC Disgusting tells the story of a boy trying to shock his older sister with an alphabetical series of disgusting things. But in the end, she hits him with what might be the biggest gross-out of all. 

WARNING: VERY DISGUSTING. (And maybe a little heartwarming.) INCLUDES FLATULENCE, LAMPREYS, MAYONNAISE MILK SHAKES, NOSE HAIR, ZOMBIES AND ZORILLAS.

B is for Bug Juice! Lovely, disgusting art by Takeshi Miyazawa and Jessica Kholinne.

The book's special brand of gross-out humor with heart is perfect for any kid or parent who's ever laughed at a fart -- and particularly great for reluctant readers who might need a bit more incentive to pick up a book.
