About the Book            

“It’s almost Christmas and Little Kane still hasn’t got anything for his parents for Christmas.
Join Little Kane as he journeys through the Big City in search of the perfect present.
Will Little Kane ever find the perfect present?”



“Adventures with Little Kane: The Quest for the Perfect Present” is a delightful original children’s storybook fully illustrated with over 75 original photographs. Written and photographed by Kane Prestenback as a Christmas gift for his parents in 2010, it was originally created as a hardcover photobook using the services of snapfish.com.


Kane spent over 14 hours exploring New York City alone as he composed, staged, and photographed every moment inthis book. In his tour, he visited Union Square, Macy’s, Columbus Circle, FAO Schwartz, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and more, all appearing in the book. The “Little Kane” figure was originally created by friends of Kane as a way to incorporate him into photographs on a beach vacation he was unable to attend.


The dedication inside the hardcover edition of the book reads: “This storybook is dedicated to Mom and Dad. It has been made possible thanks to all the wonderful things you have given me during holidays past.”
