Books of Wonder Store Tour

(I originally posted this here)

We love browsing the shelves at Books of Wonder. It’s such a magical store with so much to see and enjoy. We walk through the revolving door into another world and we know we’ll be here for a while…

Taking the first aisle on the right, next to the seating area, we find a wonderful selection of folk and fairy tales.

Follow the shelves deeper into the store, passing mythology and non-fiction.

We glance up and see cardboard cut-outs above the shelves.

One of our favourite things about this store is the imagination, how much there is to enjoy, and the overall cosy feel.

When we loop around into the next aisle, we find classic and modern day picture books before moving around to middle grade.

At the back of the store, we discover the old and rare books section. The shelves hold out-of-print and collectible children’s literature.

Some first edition titles, some signed by the author or illustrator, some limited edition copies.
