Speaking of the shopโ€™s exterior...look at the hare basking in this unexpected sun! ๐Ÿ‡ โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ“š

We love our shopโ€™s exterior - itโ€™s one of our most iconic features and it captures the essence of the shop perfectly. Our window displays change, the stock turns over but the dark blue and gold is always there, ready to welcome you in. Whatโ€™s your favourite part of our shop? Let us know...

Today is Bat Appreciation Day! ๐Ÿฆ‡ Obviously, you knew that already, but why not pop in and pick up a copy of Owl Bat, Bat Owl by @marielouisefitzpatrick to celebrate? Itโ€™s a wonderful picture book about making new friends (and itโ€™s one of bookseller Chrisโ€™s favourite books EVER). Or, if youโ€™re looking for something more grown up then why not try this pocket-sized edition of Dracula from @panmacmillan ? We love an angsty vampire at the Golden Hare ๐Ÿฆ‡

โ€œThe thing to do is just begin. The question, of course, is where?โ€
If youโ€™re enjoying the spring sunshine thatโ€™s pushed its way through the clouds but feel youโ€™re still cooking hearty winter meals then look no further. Thom Eagleโ€™s beautiful cookbook without recipes invites us into the mind of a chef cooking a spring meal. How does one extract the best flavour from an onion? And how do we cook a meal with love and still have time for the rest of our day? Find out in First, Catch. ๐Ÿ“š

Picture books in the Children's Room looking pretty sweet today! You probably know this already, but kids' books are a huge part of our business and we just love 'em. Since opening in 2012 we've seen picture books alone become more diverse, interesting and beautiful with kids reading them well into childhood and beyond! ๐Ÿ“š
It's for this reason we're overjoyed to be shortlisted for Children's Bookseller of the Year at the British Book Awards - recognition of our hard work and individuality in how we approach children's books really means the world. ๐Ÿ“š
