    This book will be our new go-to for any upcoming graduate -- high school and college alike! Also, families and caregivers would benefit greatly in helping young adults learn the principles Peg Cheng simply and practically offers in this book. The earlier these guidelines can be learned and applied, the better. And don't stop there - Peg helps readers of all ages learn the basics to finance. It's never too early or late to get started with these principles toward the path of financial success!

    Cheng’s portrayal of girls, people of color, single-parent and lower-income families, recluse introverts, and the kids who act out in class are positive and fair-minded–encouraging young readers to really get to know others and to look beyond the perceptible, seemingly insurmountable, differences between themselves and those around them. Eunice is a positive role model and engaging hero—her growth throughout the novel, open acknowledgement of her flaws, and persistence in bettering herself provides the kind of example that any adult would be proud to introduce to the youth in their lives. It’s exciting that recipes for delicious foods being consumed by the characters are included—great for reading breaks. Cheng is a talented storyteller who provides a story to grow the next generation to be open-minded and cultivate strong women

    This is a great guide that made saving for retirement feel a lot more accessible! It's a fun little read and I learned a lot of great information without being overwhelmed : )

    I read this when first published but did not have the illustrated version! It shipped so quickly and came with delightful stickers! The illustrations are fantastic and the story itself is wonderful. So good that I ordered a few for my kid's school library!

ABOUT PLAID FROG PRESS

We’re Peg Cheng and Marcus Donner, the team behind Plaid Frog Press, a Taiwanese-Mexican-German-American-owned publishing company based in Seattle, Washington.

Our company is named after our pal Froggy (who's also our CFO: Chief Frog Officer) and our mottos are READ GOOD STUFF and WRITE GOOD STUFF.

We create our books, zines, cards, and stickers in our cozy home studio in Seattle. We love all the various parts of the publishing process from creating the product, designing it, printing it, and shipping it with the help of great companies like Mixam in Illinois, Sticker Mule in New York, and EcoEnclose in Colorado. All of our stuff is printed in the USA and shipped to you in eco-friendly, recyclable materials.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we're trying to stay positive by writing, drawing, and photographing beautiful things. Makers gotta make and making stuff helps us feel better. We're so looking forward to the day when we can safely meet you in-person at a zine festival. If you want to know when we'll be tabling at zine fests, follow us on social media (see links below) or subscribe to Peg's newsletter at https//www.pegcheng.com/contact.

If you like our stuff, please FAVORITE our shop and WRITE A REVIEW. Every review is like GOLD to us and every kind word keeps us going. Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions or comments, email us at: books {at} plaidfrogpress {dot} com. We'd love to hear from you!

Love,
Peg + Marcus + Froggy

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

We don't offer gift wrapping but if you're ordering a gift for someone, we're happy to decorate the shipping envelope or box with cute stickers and can also enclose a personalized note for your recipient. Just let us know what you'd like us to write in the NOTES box at checkout.

Do you offer USPS tracking of my order?

Yes, we do. But please be aware that some items are too small or light to qualify for USPS tracking, so on some orders we'll only be able to tell you the date it shipped.

Why does it cost so much to ship to countries outside of the U.S.?

We're bummed about this too, especially in regards to our books. Please know that we charge what the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) charges, and sadly, these prices are shockingly high. We've checked with FedEx, UPS, and DHL and they charge even more so we're sticking with USPS.

Because our zines and stickers are light and flexible, they can be sent at international "letter" rates which makes shipping them more affordable.

We're creating ebook versions of all our printed books so that customers residing outside of the U.S. can read our books at an affordable price.

If you know of ways to ship internationally at cheaper rates, contact us at books {at} plaidfrogpress.com. Thank you!

I have more questions after reading your policies.

We're open to answering any and all questions. Email us at: books {at} plaidfrogpress.com.
