Welcome to the Children’s Bookshop
We are specialised children’s bookshop who have been trading for over 36 years. Drawing on our extensive stock, we aim to make choosing the perfect book a real pleasure for every child, parent and teacher.
At the end of summer we were visited in the Bookshop by Maya’s dad. They had been on their family holiday and Maya’s Tatty-Ratty rabbit had got swept up with the bedding and sent off to the laundry. Despite the hotel and laundry trying to track down the lost rabbit he was well and truly missing!
Maya’s family had trawled the internet in the hope of finding a new Tatty-Ratty, but unfortunately he is no longer available, despite still being able to buy the story book, hence the visit to the Bookshop – in the hope that we could source one. We never like to be beaten! So numerous phone calls, emails across the globe – America, Canada, Japan, Australia New Zealand, asking the publisher’s to check the darkest corners of their warehouse, but no little rabbit. Then a member of staff emailed Helen Cooper’s agent, and living with Helen was a Tatty Ratty! She very kindly offered to send him to Maya along with a message. Maya was delighted, as you can see from the photo.
We like happy endings!
All customers welcome here!
