Meet Sofia, a little girl who lives a rather ordinary life. But everything changes when her mother, Miranda, marries the king. Overnight, Sofia becomes a princess, moves into the castle, gains a step-brother, a step-sister... and the ability to talk to her new animal friends thanks to a magical amulet! Now, life is anything but ordinary for Sofia the First!

About the Author
Catherine Hapka is the author of many books for children of all ages. She is too tall to ride ponies, though her mare, Gerri, still looks like one. Catherine takes riding lessons twice a week and lives on a farm with Gerri, three goats, a small flock of chickens, and too many cats.

Codlo was conceptualized by Grace and Xi in 2012. They wanted to make sous-vide cooking easy, approachable and fun to share their excitement about this cooking technique.

When Grace were first introduced to sous-vide cuisine, she were astounded by how moist, tender and flavorful it could be, even with traditionally dry meats such as chicken breast. It made her ask ourselves "what if existing food we cooked could taste way better?"

After a year of development, she launched her Kickstarter campaign for Codlo in July 2013. She raised funds from 1,139 amazing backers around the world to bring Codlo to life - an actual, physical product built by us and our backers.
