Children’s Book Publisher is seeking a new language for a children’s book series in development. The series targets kids ages 7-11. It takes place in present day, based on a family of activists and a hidden community of talking bears. The bears communicate with their human counterparts through the use of translation devices, but among themselves they have developed a complete language. An exciting component of this is interactivity between kid readers and the language. The goal is to foster a community of readers who contribute to the lexicon of the language through an interactive online site. With this in mind, the language should strike a balance in complexity; simple enough that kids can participate, yet complex enough to still be an interesting puzzle. Please email Elizabeth Grojean (see below), including a summary of experience and qualifications. The fee is a minimum of $2,000 negotiable based on qualifications, with the potential for further translation work under a separate contract as new books in the series are developed.
