Meet "Libby & Dish"

Libby and Dish are best friends who live in a high-rise apartment in the Big City. Libby is a shy, quiet girl with a big imagination, and Dish is a well-fed kitty with a head for planning.

Both of them are fond of adventures, fruit smoothies, and Mr. Bhachu, the grumpy old man at the end of the hall. Neither of them likes loud noises, mayonnaise, or the drooly dog Chad who lives in the apartment next door.

With Libby’s “Adventure Checklist” and Dish’s keen mind for plans, the two of them discover the many wonders of the city — including the magical delivery truck, the abundance of the public library, and a new boy named Juan Paco whose family just moved into the building.


Libby & Dish is our newest collection, perfect for ages 3 and up.

We've created three sweet stories to introduce the characters in their urban world. Would you like to have a taste?
