The world's oldest children's bookstore
Dear book lovers,

May has brought us so many books that we almost don't know where to begin!

Except we do, because we have a very special book to share with you. 

Chloe Hooper's new book is a memoir about grief and reckoning with severe illness, and how to talk to her children about what's going on in their family. ⁠

It's a step into the world of children's literature and into The Little Bookroom. No, really! Attentive readers will recognise our little shop scattered throughout her story. But that's not the only reason we love it. Tender, raw, honest and ultimately hopeful, it explores the stories we turn to when terrible circumstances befall us. ⁠

If the premise wasn't engaging enough, it's scattered with gorgeous, atmospheric illustrations by Anna Walker!⁠

For grown-ups and older teens who love a window into someone's life through memoirs, Bedtime Story is sure to move readers. ⁠
Not only has Chloe dropped by to sign stock (We might run out of signed copies soon, but we'll get her by again to sign some more, for sure!), but she also guest-authored an article and book list for us! 
Read her article HERE.
Check out the book trailer.
Here are just a sample of the other titles we're super excited about! 
Michael wrote an article for the Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS) Connections Journal for Term 2! 

It's designed for teachers and librarians who are trying to expand their collections, but there may well be something of interest in there for parents or guardians with ever-expanding collections in their homes! *wink*

Plus, we also wanted to celebrate our brand new shelving in the Graphic Novel section that makes it so pretty and easy to browse! Maybe you should come in and have a look for yourself! 
Graphic novels and manga selection: 101
Another thing that has kept us busy all week is getting our Autumn Subscriptions ready to send out! 

So many of you gift these Seasonal Bundles of new releases to loved ones all over the country and we absolutely delight in sending out our favourite picks to all those eager homes.
