Releases “A Children’s Book for Everyone” In “A Nighttime Trip to Planet Nuf” local writers Mayra Porrata and Crystal Pirri help people of all ages discover their own value and worth. As young protagonist Kyle compares himself to the other children in his life, he feels less-than. Then one night, a magical creature from Planet NUF comes to visit him and reminds him of something he already knew. This introductory book of the NUF character brings NUF founder Cal King’s vision to the page. Cal, who began his work on NUF nearly 28 years ago, was fueled by his passion to understand “what is enough?”. Cal King is a firm believer in that “whatever you conceive and believe, you can achieve!” What started as a simple question developed into his life’s work. NUF’s simple and timeless message reminds us that “enough” can only be found in our hearts. Local Tallmadge resident and Columbus School of Art & Design student Kaleb Rice, created the art for the book. A Nighttime Trip to Planet NUF also marks Kaleb’s children’s book illustration debut. NUF, Inc. is a Cuyahoga Falls-based company dedicated to promoting the idea that we are each a NUF! www.planetnuf.com
