You know when your six-year-old loses a tooth tooth in the morning, puts it under their pillow and then waits eagerly for the next morning… except... the tooth is still there?
Or when Santa's elves have to stay up late wrapping Christmas presents, and maybe by the last few those presents aren't so perfectly wrapped?
These books explain why magic doesn't always work the way it should.
Parents don’t even have to say a word.
Mishaps happen when you're mortal
At ‘A Little Slack,’ we know parents are trying their absolute best to raise good humans - and that doing so is a lot of work. Add to that the mythical creatures we've invented along the way, and a few things are going to slip through the cracks. I mean, you're not actually magic here.
The problem is you've got a lot going on - loads of responsibilities and too many things to remember. Which makes you feel at best overwhelmed, and at worst, like you’re failing as a parent.
We believe that we are all doing our very best, and that sometimes we deserve a little grace. We understand that slip ups happen (been there!) and usually when you least expect it.
How about we use the power of fiction to add some magic and make life easier?
That's where we come in.
Read our books with your kids now and laugh along as they learn that there are real reasons for late or mixed-up magic!
And then, the next time the tooth fairy forgets to come, or the kids ask why Santa can't wrap presents if he's had hundreds of years of practice, you know exactly what to say - no magic required.
