We believe…

In empowering kids to make smart choices online by developing and using their super Cynja powers
Awesome storytelling and way cool illustrations should be inspired by real cyber threats and technology
Kids need a magical place that will help them grow into their digital lives
Parents and children should learn about cyberspace together
The world needs more Cynjas

Company Overview:

Founders Heather Dahl and Chase Cunningham, along with illustrator & IT engineer Shirow Di Rosso, published their first book, The Cynja® Volume 1 in 2014. Since then The Cynja has grown into series of comic books published in English, Dutch and Spanish, including an array of entertaining and educational content, and ultimately into the CynjaSpace mobile application — all designed to help families make smart digital choices.

The Cynja began as an illustrated children’s book series introducing readers to the awesome world of cyberspace and internet security. The Cynja-Volume 1 introduces readers to kid warrior, Grant Wiley, and tells about his dramatic transformation into The Cynja through an awesome adventure story rooted in real world cyber threats. Volume 2- Code of the Cynja brings us Jo Alita—our Cynja heroine—who uses her cutting edge math skills to stop a massive cyber attack. Translated in three languages, the first edition hardcover books sold out in less than a year and our e-books are available worldwide.
