Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Our favourite bookstores & gift shops (as of June 2017)


Bookstores are my favourite go-to destinations when I need to buy a gift. Love the sight, love the smell. May they continue to add to the pleasure of urban walks. Here's a list of bookstores which carry (or have carried) one or another of my four titles. Those in orange come with my description and tips on a few other places that might interest you while you're there. (Note that most places only order one or two copies of a title at a time so they can easily be sold out. Any bookstore can order a book for you if you provide them with the title and name of the author.)
