Publisher's Summary

When I sat down with my then-8-year old on the red chair in early March of 2014, having just read a really bad children's book and said, "Wow, that book was pretty bad". I then immediately followed up with, "We can do better than that". My son looked at me like I was crazy (I was) and challenged me to follow through on my dare.

I did.

Within a month, we had a book on Amazon.

Now we can boast almost all of the list below:

  1. We have sold 1,000,000+ books in 89 countries and 7 languages.
  2. We sometimes had to resort to bribery, coercion, and ice cream to get a chapter done.
  3. Just on royalties alone, Li is eyeing a Maserati for his 16th birthday.
  4. We created something from nothing and no one can ever take that away.
  5. We get regular calls from Hollywood producers about making the movie versions.
  6. We broke all of Audible's rules when we recorded the audiobook version - and got rejected.
  7. Both boys have transformed into perfect angels who study Mandarin in their free time after violin lessons and before their volunteer work for global literacy.
  8. I have a audio proof of my 10-year old narrating Chapter 8 that I can use at his wedding to embarrass him beyond his wildest nightmares and I can bring that up whenever I like to remind my boys that we are a family who shares experiences (and it's good for blackmail).
  9. We did it all right.
  10. We did it all wrong.
  11. We did it. Period.

This audiobook is proof that we can create something from nothing together with our kids. What you're about to embark on is a journey that no one can take away from you. We're going to create a time capsule you'll be able to cherish until your 89-year-old neighbor finally tells you she's deaf and hasn't heard a word about it.

This audiobook is going to help you create a bond with your kids.

For the record:

  1. We're not shooting for stardom (at least, not beyond your family).
  2. It's almost guaranteed it won't win any literary awards.
  3. I don't care if you sell 7 copies. (P.S. Either will you.)
  4. We're shooting for the experience of starting, persevering, and finishing a creative project with parents and children that you can be proud of (or cringe over).
