BabyLit Book Series

Greg has partnered with Gibbs Smith and their BabyLit division to bring to life his vision of historically-themed ABC books. Not your typical “a is for apple” alphabet books, these clever and unique treasures introduce words many adults may want to learn with smart and playful illustrations that herald back to the golden era of book art. http://www.gibbs-smith.com


Greg’s historic ABC series is being kicked off by the wild west, medieval Europe, and Victorian eras. Three additional books for the series will be hitting the bookstore shelves in the coming months.

M is for Monocle

The Victorian era is fascinating with the duality of having one foot into the mechanization of the future and one foot in the class distinctions and traditions of the past. M is for Monocle is a highly entertaining conversation starter for parents and their kids.
