I HEART Children’s Bookstores

Thursday, February 10th, 2011


I don’t know how many children’s bookstores are still out there… Does anybody? I’m guessing less than we would all hope, unfortunately.

We spent the weekend with my in-laws in Memphis and my mother-in-law and I were looking to kill some time Monday afternoon. There was a little used children’s bookstore we used to frequent (I love a good deal), but my MIL told me it is now closed. No wait! I just looked it up, and I think she’s mistaken. It’s still open.

Well anyhow, we thought it was closed and so I inquired as to whether or not there might be an independent children’s bookstore in the area. She told me that she used to take my husband and his sister to a place called Pinnochio’s when they were young. But she assumed it was now closed.

She went and grabbed the phone book to look it up, and guess what? It’s still open! (I told her she needs to have a little more faith in her local children’s bookstores!).

Intellectually charged with twelve full-color illustrations, authored by PA based artist Gianetta Ellis, this epic poem is a journey of mythic proportions. Hailed as one of the most ingenious and bold literary undertaking in a generation, he shares a splendid narrative of how Great Britain was formed. A young Prince Albion becomes a king when he is but a babe in the arms of a knight forced to rescue him. This same knight helps him on the road of life and in the ways of becoming a leader.

The road of a king is long and winding. In this case, a king of great legion founds a homeland – a small great nation; indeed, a legend is born.
