Jason Horn, creator of the Ninjasaur webcomic, is looking to Kickstart the funds to print an illustrated kids' novella about time travel:
Kathryn the Crononaut is a all-ages novella (short novel) that seeks to introduce kids to advanced scientific theories in a fun, entertaining manner. Kathryn O’Riley is a smart, idealistic sixth-grader who decides to use her science fair project to declare that she will dedicate her life to someday creating time travel. She announces to the world that her future self will arrive the day of the fair to demonstrate the scientific breakthrough she will eventually make.

With the help of her parents, her best friend Holly, and her grumpy old science teacher, Kathryn learns that inspiring her classmates could have just as much of an impact as actually creating time travel.
