The Gift of a Book will last a Lifetime.

From the start, our ambition has always been to create resonant, unexpected, collectible picture books. And over the years we’ve demonstrated we can recognize and develop irresistibly unique projects; from rejuvenating timeless properties in the public domain, to marrying cutting edge author and illustrator collaborators.

Little Fen loves all of the beautiful colors in the world and loves capturing them with her treasured set of paints. One day, Fen notices a little drop of gray in her paints and can’t seem to stop it from spreading. Before long the gray is everywhere, and Fen no longer enjoys doing what she loves the most. With a little encouragement from her mother, Fen finds a way to put the colors back in her world and begin enjoying life again. Fen’s Drop of Gray sends a powerful message about childhood depression and how parents can help their little ones learn to cope.
