"Photosythesizy is just one of the many fun descriptions."

LITTLE MITTEN PRESS is an independent Toronto-based publisher of mischievous, creative and thoughtful children’s books. 2019 is our inaugural year, with the release of Craig Macnaughton’s first picture book, “A B Sea Creatures.” Our name comes from Craig’s three year old daughter, who, despite it being the coldest time of the Canadian winter, asks if she can wear her “little mittens.” And yes, a picture book is in the works about this struggle between a daddy and his stubborn daughter.
