This shop belongs in a movie - it has that much charm! With an arsenal of pets (everything from birds to cats & all named after book characters, of course), this location is worth a stop just to visit them. On top of that, there...More

If you enjoy reading real books and are looking for a fun and memorable experience, this is the place. Children of all ages love it (the feel a little sad when they no longer fit in the smaller inner door).

We went here for the "free range" animals, but the book selection is awesome as well. My girls were amazed by the cats and chickens, not so much the books :)
