What we do
Based in Toronto, we create ebooks & ecards that exercise critical & creative thinking and generate conversation, while keeping things fun.
Though we focus on ages 9-ish to teens, of all levels, we also offer some all ages materials.
As of summer 2022, everything is in PDF format. In some cases we include two versions - one ideal for easy viewing on phones and another for printing.
Our mission in a nutshell
For all levels
We try to create materials that can work for any and all levels within that 9 to teen age range.
With this in mind, we focus a lot on open-ended questions and on ensuring our items are engaging, so that kids like using them.
We often hear back from customers that our content is different, creative and and that kids love it. This is the best feedback we could receive.
What makes us different
Our focus is on making the content engaging if not a bit quirky. To do this, we draw from a vast well - Ancient Greek philosophy, political strategy, history, science & tech issues, anything sci fi, fairy tale & fantasy-related, global news, topics on social media, pop culture, even cheesy action movies.
All of these ideas get connected, reimagined and reshaped into scenarios and topics that are substantive, interesting, fun and that seem to capture kids' - as well as adults' - attention and imagination.
Personally - like as people - we crave simplicity. You'll find this mood reflected in our distraction-free design and in our approach to content.
Our stuff is easy to digest.

Social media (or lack thereof!)
As a small business, time is not on our side. We do our best to keep up with social media - but when it gets busy, you may notice that we post less frequently.
Currently, we're on Facebook and we recently launched on Instagram where we are slllooowwwllly - 🐢 - building our presence.
But most of all we really could use some recommendations on our Facebook page! In 2022, we'll start to work on this.
Furious Think is run by editor/publisher Cynthia Reynolds who works with a collective of contributors in Toronto and Ottawa. This includes our invaluable lead designer Kim Mallette and illustrator extraordinaire Silvia Stanziola.
