The Children's Bookshop, Muswell Hill is an independent family-owned children's bookshop which first opened in 1974. 


We are currently closed, but operating online.


If you or your loved ones are self isolating or social distancing, we are able to send you books, activity books, audiobooks, and non-fiction - with free local delivery! To place an order, please get in touch.

Stocking a huge range of fiction and non-fiction, our staff are always on hand to offer specialist advice on choosing books for children.


We run a bespoke postal subscription service for book lovers of all ages, and gift collections to mark any occasion - see more at our shop page.

We also offer a comprehensive service to schools and teachers, including school library supply, book fairs, author visits and open evenings. For more information on what we can offer you as a parent, carer, teacher or school please either contact us or take at our information for schools.
