Grant Thatcher launched his LUXE City Guides in 2001, and since then, he's expanded to 30 pocketbook-sized titles filled with "smart stuff for busy people." Now Thatcher is taking on a new challenge: Little LUXE Guides. The kid-friendly series aims to show the same discerning readers who fell for Thatcher's spot-on recommendations how to "go glam with the fam." Little LUXE Hong Kong, the debut title, is available this month. Its signature gatefold format contains hundreds of family-centered picks, such as Hong Kong Disneyland ("The house of mouse needs no intro"), Magic Mirror Kids' Hair ("Pop your little ray of sunshine on a giraffe… for the coolest haircuts in town") and The KIDchen by Kit Lin ("Mini chefs learn to cook their own dim sum"), plus babysitting recommendations and spa picks for parents in need of some R&R. Written by editors living in Hong Kong with their children, the guide is the next best thing to having a friend on the ground. The next title in the series, Little LUXE Singapore, is slated for November. $10;
