Ditmas Park Publishing (DPP) was formed in 2019, for the purpose of publishing the children’s book "Joaquin and the Pekkybirds, A Brooklyn Story." Soon after starting DPP, it occurred to us that there were lots of other stories in our neighborhood, and that DPP could help bring those stories to fruition.
There once was a boy named Joaquin. Joaquin was a very nice boy except for when he wasn’t. Follow Joaquin through his magical Brooklyn neighborhood on a day he didn’t feel like being nice; a very important day leading to his discovery of pekkybirds. Story by Angela Welch, illustrations by Geoff Crowe. Graphic design, video and sound by Mikki Nylund. Published by Ditmas Park Publishing.
