Be a book dragon!


I thought it was time to share this one again...


Langston Hughes, 1938.


Dreams. ๐Ÿ˜ Any scientists/inventors here able to make this happen ASAP?

This will help bibliophiles aged 8 (or younger), straight through to adults who have to switch off the bedside lamp because *having to finish that chapter* bothers their sleeping spouse, partner, child or roommate.

Arlo discovers the 'Biographies' section, and realizes, with a shock, that he was born into the wrong era.

He doesn't recognize these creatures known as 'chimps', 'underdogs' or 'humans'.
There is no carnivorous T-Rex or Velociraptor to dissuade from eating these 'humans'.
However, he did discover, on the neighbouring 'True Crime' shelf, a human named Jeffrey Dahmer - who may need to read Malcolm Bradbury's book anyway.

Overwhelmed by this existential crisis, Arlo makes his way to the table of 'latest returns' and obscure Contemporary World Literature. Perhaps there he'll learn a little more about being the 'other'.

Arlo spends a little time seeing what Tannie Evita is cooking up, and goes on 'a safari' to teach us that kind people only shoot wildlife - with a camera. ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿ˜

Arlo travels to the Fae Corner of the forest, and is introduced to a wide variety of children's classics and teenage literature by a group of (only slightly creepy) porcelain dolls. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

In which Arlo becomes better acquainted with the excessive lifestyles of our favorite rock 'n roll icons, and attempts to call an Uber home on the 'original Smartphone'. ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿฆ•

In light of our previous post - and in dedication to our Bookshop-Baby, Iris, today we present to you:

In which Arlo learns about his heritage, how to motivate children, studies geography and learns how to help out with making dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฆ•


'If you go down to the [Blue Forest] today, you're in for a big surprise...' ๐Ÿคญ

Now, in case you find yourself wondering why Wolfgang is carrying a dinosaur plushy in his pocket today, here's why:

Meet Arlo!
Since our own little dino, Iris, isn't able to come to the shop today; she's insisted that her Daddy takes Arlo the Brachiosaurus along to represent her.

Be sure to come say hi to Arlo today. ;) ๐Ÿฆ•
