At a Glance

We have a huge volume of events that happen during the year, including a large number of author visits to the shop. Signed and dedicated books from recent authors are often available in the shop and for sending out by post, so if you cannot make it to the event, you can always order a copy in advance or come by and pick one up from the shop.

Have a look below to see what's on, or add your name to our emailing list for our updates!

We're so excited to have Harriet Muncaster signing at the bookshop for the first time! We'll be celebrating a new Isadora Moon book, a new Mirabelle book, and a brand new character with Isadora's friend... Emerald the mermaid!

This a free event - just turn up! Our queue will start outside the shop from 3.15pm - we are quite a small shop so please don't arrive before 3pm.  (Refreshments are available from our favourite cafe La Dinette three doors down.)

Please note Harriet will only be able to sign books bought in the bookshop (and maybe one favourite from home, dependant on time!)

If you can't make it, we can always arrange to books signed & dedicated - just order here.
