History

We moved the children's section out of Avid Reader Bookshop and in March, 2015 created a new home for avid young readers next door at Where the Wild Things Are. 

The history of this store prior to Wild Things is that it was a Retravision shop for over twenty years and West End locals can remember it being a butcher's shop in the 1960s. Before that we're not sure. We will investigate further.

At Where the Wild Things Are we stock the latest releases as well as classic titles. We specialise in personal service and provide an extensive special order system, book advice to schools, gift recommendations, free gift wrapping and gift vouchers.

We have frequent in-store events including bookclubsbook launches and signings. Join our mailing list to keep up to date with all our activities.

Where the Wild Things Are also supports a range of local schools, community activities and groups.

We look forward to seeing you.
