The Little Bookroom Logo

The Little Bookroom - bringing children's books to Melbourne since 1960.

The Little Bookroom opened its doors to the public on Friday the 13th October, 1960, the first bookstore in Australia to stock only children's books. It has been a Melbourne institution ever since!

The shop is named for a collection of stories by Eleanor Farjeon who wrote:

"I am proud and happy to know you've chosen the title of my book for the title of your Bookshop in the City my Father first set foot in the 1850s when he emigrated to Australia as a boy of 16. The stories he told me of his arrival in Melbourne have always made it seem to be one of 'my' cities. Thank you for giving me a home in it"

Edward Ardizzone illustrated 'The Little Bookroom' and provided us with an original ink illustration for our logo, a treasure indeed.
