The shop was really pretty and I enjoyed looking at different books for children. However, what killed a totally perfect experience was the people working there. As I am working on a children-specialised project, I went there to get some inspiration and was planning to...More

This charming shop carries illustrative books mostly for children - and some for adults. A good strategy as the other famous bookshop in Tiong Bahru is aimed towards the words-only material. They have small toys and charming stationery at the counter. Look for vintage New...More
