An independent Toronto-based publisher of mischievous, creative and thoughtful children’s books.

Our name comes from a certain three year old, who, despite it being the coldest time of the Canadian winter, continually asks if she could wear her ‘little mittens.’ And yes, a picture book is in the works about the eternal struggle between a daddy and his stubborn daughter.

Craig Macnaughton is author, illustrator, picture book maker and the founder of Little Mitten Press. He's also is a stay-at-home-parent, fine artist and film buff. "A B Sea Creatures" was launched in October 2019, with "Birds of a Letter", "26 Bugs" and "R is for Rainforests" following, with many picture books on the way!

Also a budding chef, graphic designer and award-winning filmmaker, Craig is a member of Julie Hedlund’s 12x12 Challenge, SCBWI Canada East and CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators and Performers).

Craig lives in Toronto with his wife and two kids.
