Whether for kids, adults, fiction or non-fiction - if it is about a book we love to have a chat about it.

As Canberra's specialist children's bookshop, our aim is to find books that other shops or distributors overlook or cannot find.
We have a big focus on diverse children's literature, local authors and creators, non-fiction, environmental issues and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories and authors.
We love to help local schools, preschools, early childhood learning services and play groups find great books for kids to enjoy.
And need a locally based book fair? We can help with that!!
