Ever dreamed of your own children's bookshop?

Are you a children's literature enthusiast who's always dreamed of running a children's bookshop? 

We're sad to hear that Malcolm at Storytime Books in Petone is looking to sell up (although his reasons are happy - he wants to spend more time with family). We hope he finds someone to buy his business who is as dedicated to children's books and as marvellous to deal with as he is. 

If you're interested in finding out more about this children's book business in the heart of fun and thriving Petone, see The Storytime Books blog.
