Our Happy Customers

Gorgeous stock of children’s books and more with both new and old titles. I’ve bought in-store and online and they’ve both been a great experience. The service was fantastic, my delivery arrived the day after it was shipped and beautifully wrapped! Delighted with my order, would highly recommend!

Alex Meyers

We're lucky to have the best children's bookshop I've ever
been to here in Bray. It's the type of shop where you trust everything they stock is excellent. We love that they have Irish and illustrators, as well as books that are unique and curated.

Kathleen Souder

Absolutely amazing bookshop, has the BEST selection of children's books in Dublin, plus incredible artwork. Even if you aren't into
children's books, go have a look at their prints. I already own several!
