About us

We are a small family run business.  Roger has a lifelong passion for books and has developed his knowledge of collectable childrens books, authors and illustrators over the years and has a particular interest in Enid Blyton and Eagle/Dan Dare. We sell online and at PBFA and local bookfairs throughout the year.

Jane comes from a family of avid book collectors and has built up her own collections.  This can prove a hindrance to Roger if he brings home a book she collects - he particularly struggles to get Alice in Wonderland or JRR Tolkien past her. 

We are always on the look out for classic childrens books, emerging collectable authors and illustrators, along with the unusual, rare and interesting to add to our stock list and to immerse you in nostalgia.   

We pride ourselves on the high quality of our books and excellent customer service.  You can be assured that the item you receive will be exactly as described and will arrive promptly and well packaged.  Any defects and imperfections will be highlighted in the description.  All books in dustwrapper will come in an unattached, clear protective cover.  Each book is photographed and, wherever possible this is done before the cover is attached, thus showing the true condition of the book.  

We aim to keep postage costs to a minimum and combine postage on multiple purchases.   Regular customers and subscribers to our newsletter will receive the latest updates, offers and discount codes.  We hope you will be pleased with your purchase but if you have any issues you can be rest assured of a no quibble return policy.
