What does it take to be a good friend? The dragon will help bake and light the cake, while a mermaid will definitely make a splash at your beach bash. Knights are generous and always serve their guests first. And although they may be green and smelly, there is no better listener than an ogre. From a slumber party spa night with Bigfoot to reading adventurous tales under the tree with a pirate, kids are likely to find friends anywhere. Even the friendly princess will be happy to help build a tree house fit for royalty! These fun (and sometimes mythical) characters will show readers how to be a good friend and teach children that the power was inside themselves all along.

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.

We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.

To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
