I’m Francesca Cavallo, co-author of the
“Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” book series.
In 2019, I started Undercats, Inc. with the mission of radically increasing diversity in children’s media.
There was a time when parents felt their role was to help their kids grow up, find a good job and start a family. Then, in the ’90s, parents started wanting to help their kids listen to their inner voice and honoring their unique talent.
Then, the #metoo movement, #blacklivesmatter and #fridaysforfuture showed millions of parents that parenting is one of the most important political acts they’ll do in their life.
Because being a parent means not only being responsible towards your children, but towards the future of our planet.
Undercats helps parents who want to raise children who value diversity, equality and sustainability. We publish stunningly beautiful and inspiring books about LGBTQ+ characters, people with disabilities, and people of color. In other words, those who have remained invisible in children's media for far too long.
So many families around the world are ready to take action for equality. If yours is too, please, support our mission by buying our first book “Doctor Li and the crown-wearing virus”
and subscribe to our newsletter.
We are starting a movement, and I’d love you to be part of it.
