Phantom birthday

One of the most beloved works of fantasy in American literature, The Phantom Tollbooth has delighted generation after generation with its magical tale of a boy, his watchdog, and his wild imagination. Now, on the book's 50th birthday, filmmaker Hannah Jayanti explores the educational, political, and linguistic backstory of a children's book that will — it seems — joyfully outlive us all.

Do the dordle!

Nik Daum likes to doodle in secret when his boss isn't looking — shh! — then turn his sketches into polished, pretty cards. He calls them "Dordles," a hybrid of a doodle and a drawing, and he's amassed over 400 of them so far. Themes range from sweet to silly, puns abound, and backers get to vote on which ones get printed!

Judging by the cover

Perfect for babies (and adults who hate paper cuts), Victoria's homemade, cloth-bound books are both educational and downright comfy. Each edition covers a basic topic, like dinosaurs, planets, or the ABCs, and uses colorful, quilted appliqués to make the experience truly hands on! Collect 'em all for your very own, very huggable library.
