We've just opened a new shop for Christmas. The Children's Room Pop-up on George is an extension of our wonderful children's area at the back of the University Book Shop on Great King St. we've been overwhelmed by customer feedback and are thrilled to be creating another space where the young (and young at heart) can rediscover the magic of childhood reading.
