This 30th Anniversary Edition, and the multi-ethnic illustrations it contains, was birthed out of the loss of the authors' youngest son, Jeremy, who at age 41 succumbed to aggressive Lymphoma, leaving behind a wife and three young children. Jeremy was an illustrator and immigration specialist who spoke multiple languages, and had always dreamed of creating multicultural art for The Kingdom Tales Trilogy, but never received the chance. In his honor, and to reflect the emerging ethnic times in which we live, the authors ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the re-issue of these books on their 30th anniversary with revised content and characters depicted in different ethnicities.
