About The Wonder Board Blog

At TurlBook® we’re about the incidental magic in life. We’re about moments of wonder. The world needs more of both.

We especially love it when the magic comes from writing, technology, illustration, art, animation, breakthroughs, inspiring learning and simply the wonder of life. Are you a writer? An illustrator? Animator? Artist? Do you work in education? Perhaps the book industry? See submission guidelines.
