    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.

READ GOOD STUFF

We’re Peg and Marcus, the team behind Plaid Frog Press, a Taiwanese-Mexican-German-American-owned indie publisher based in Seattle, Washington. Our motto is: READ GOOD STUFF. All our books, zines, and stickers are made in the U.S.A.

Our pal Froggy is our CFO (Chief Frog Officer) and appears on our logo. It's just the three of us running this joint and we're thrilled that you're here!

We dream, create, and design all our stuff in our home studio in Seattle. We're inspired by everyday life as well as our travels to towns, cities, and countries all over the world. We enjoy all parts of the publishing process from creating and designing the product, to printing it using vegetable inks and environmentally-sustainable paper with the help of Mixam in Illinois, to packing every order with love using eco-friendly packaging from EcoEnclose in Colorado.

We launched in December 2019 and soon after, the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. We had planned on tabling at zine fests throughout 2020 but that's been postponed. It's a challenging time, but we're still writing, drawing, and taking photos. We hope you're staying healthy and safe, and we look forward to meeting you someday when it's safe to travel to fests once again.

IF YOU LIKE OUR STUFF, please favorite our shop and write a review. Every review is GOLD TO US and every kind word keeps us motivated to make more good stuff to share with you!

Peg + Marcus + Froggy
