We are a small, independent children's bookshop, established in 1975. In April 2015 the shop changed hands and has undertaken a face lift. However we aim to continue providing a wide range of fabulous books to fire the imagination.
The shop is well-established as a specialist children's bookshop with experienced staff who can help you find your perfect book.
Whether your child is just starting to read, uninterested, or a voracious reader we have books for them.
We also supply schools. Click here for further details.
Why not come to the shop and see how we can help you!
We will also post books anywhere in the UK and will only charge the actual cost of postage.
The books have arrived safely to Bristol and are wonderful. Just what I had in mind for my boys and arrived so quickly. Thank you. Regards, Rebecca"
Children's Book of the Month - March 2020
Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray
Orphans of the Tide tells the story of a mysterious boy who washes up on the shores of The City. Citizens believe he's the Enemy - the god who drowned the world - come again to cause untold chaos, and it’s up to Ellie, a fearless young inventor living in a workshop crammed with curiosities, to prove that he's innocent. Feels very current with one city left standing whilst the others have all disappeared under the floodwaters!
(This title has been chosen by Independent Booksellers.)
Did you know we sell a small range of adult books? I am always on the look out for interesting titles that do not have a high profile. In addition we can order almost any title and they are often here within a week. Shop local and conveniently.
The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood
Miss Ona Vitkus is 104. The boy is young, a boy scout, sent to help her out. The connection is real, and then he stops turning up, just like all the others. Then his father turns up. What follows are stories within stories. Stories of how through one small boy the adults open up to acknowledge their own stories. It's funny, and engaging, heartwarming and heartbreaking, life affirming and inspiring.
