    Finally received something awesome in the mail! I love Peg's story, how she explains the different investments and provides other resources. I have hope for my financial future.
    Rebel Millionaire is a great guide and all teens and young adults should have a copy. I will definitely keep you in mind when I need a gift for a young person or anyone who doesn't have a clue about money and savings.
    Thanks for the cute stickers too! :)

    I loved *everything* about this purchase, from the thoughtful little additions (including a note & stickers), as well as the book itself.

    I've done my fair share of personal finance reading and, well, this is probably the single best thing I've read. Why? So effortlessly simple + effective. As I'm about to turn 31, this is *just* the nudge I needing to start saving and investing for my future. Thank you Peg & PlaidFrogPress! In a few years' time, I have a funny feeling I'll be thanking you. :)

    I loved this book! As an adult who loves children's books, this book is also one I would love to give as a gift in the future. The story was very sweet and the heroine Eunice is spunky, sometimes prone to losing her temper (and which little girl doesn't when the world is UNFAIR! Eunice is bullied by Thad, her archnemesis since first grade) and surrounded by lots of people who love her. Eunice is fatefully paired up with Thad as a teammate to compete in Soap Lake's Brawn and Brain's Contest, which she has dreamed of winning for years! Will they be able to make it through this year of cutthroat competition? Will Eunice win the enticing red bike she has ALWAYS wanted? The Contenders is a really touching, fun, heart-warming tale of the bully and the bullied and what success & winning really mean. It left me misty-eyed!

    I haven't read it yet but I was thrilled to open my new book today to find both the author and illustrator signed my copy! Peg noticed before I did that shipment seemed to be delayed and got in touch with me before I had a chance to wonder. You can definitely count on great customer service from this shop.

Handcrafted books, zines & stickers made in the USA

We’re Peg and Marcus, the hubs-and-wife founders of Plaid Frog Press, a Taiwanese-Mexican-German-American-owned indie publisher. Our pal Froggy is the CFO (Chief Frog Officer)--as well as its namesake--and appears on our logo and at special events. It's just the three of us running this joint so we're thrilled that you're here!

Plaid Frog Press handcrafts books, zines, and stickers for your reading and decorating pleasure. Most of our stuff is dreamed up, written, drawn, and designed right in our home studio in Seattle, Washington, but some of it is made while we’re traveling and being inspired by the world around us. All of our products are printed in the U.S.A.

We launched in December 2019. Very soon after that, the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. We were planning on tabling at zine fests in 2020 but that's been postponed. Still, we're writing, drawing, taking photos, and making good stuff. Makers gotta make and it makes us feel better to be creative. We hope to meet you at a zine fest when it's safe again to freely travel and be within 6 feet of people. Looking forward to that day!

In the meantime, check out pegcheng.com/blog for stories about our work and the creative life. You can also connect with us on Twitter at @pegcheng and @marcusdonner (Marcus is on Instagram too).

If you have any questions or comments, email us at books {at} plaidfrogpress.com. We'd love to hear from you. Thank you for supporting indie authors and artists!
