Little Critter, LLC is lead by long-time creative director, producer and writer John R. Sansevere, with partners Sword, Rowe & Company and real estate developer Richard Dreher.

The intended series will features various casts of animal characters living in Citterville, with a focus on challenges and neighborhood adventures of growning up, and a story promoting social-emotional learning.

The books have also found success in Asia with more than 100 titles released in China in 2016.
