Thurston's taken franchises like Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars, and Doctor Who and created a whole series of 14 page miniature books made for kids. The books measure 4" by 4" and feature illustrations with a bit of text, and the combination of the size and interiors make them ideal for holding the attention of tiny ones.
Sample titles include:
Go, Smaug, Go
Nighty Night Lil Wampa
Come Along Pond
The Blue Box
I think the titles would make a wonderful baby shower gift, but they'd really be great for any gift-giving occasion. Imagine being responsible for getting a kid hooked on Doctor Who or Star Wars - that's a good day.
The construction of the books is pretty basic, but it's effective. They all have soft covers but are printed on a thick paper stock so they're sturdy. The books are stapled together, and none of the pages in the books I looked at were falling out. They're simple and fun and geeky, which is pretty much exactly what you want in a kid's book.
You can purchase Thurston's books at Etsy for $7/each or get them in person at conventions. They might be priced differently at shows. His schedule's posted on his Facebook page.
