Here at Funky Gerbil we publish books and comics to help young people get important stuff across to grown-ups who don't seem to want to listen.
It's not because they don't care, it's just that... well... adults are usually incredibly busy and don't have the time they would like to just sit down and talk.
Many adults have also forgotten what it is like to be young. But the truth is, adults are just children who have been around for a long time. I know, I am one. A parent too. I was also a school teacher until I decided I could make more of a difference by doing this.
The books we publish begin life as something important that young people and adults really need to be talking about together. Such as what it is like to be stuck in school, bored all the time. Or what it is like to be Autistic, or Dyslexic.
We throw young people, authors and artists into a huge pot, stir and out comes a book or two. Sometimes even a comic strip or an animation. Why? To get everyone talking about stuff that matters.
Welcome. Look around. Contact us. Get involved.
