The Alligator's Mouth
The Alligator’s Mouth is an independent children’s bookshop in Richmond, stocking books from baby to late teen, as well as a small selection of cards and board games. We often work with local schools, providing events or stocking libraries. Regular events in the shop include a story time, book club, comics club and more to encourage all forms of creativity. There are frequent author and illustrator visits to look out for.
We are a community bookshop and we will continue to be here for you in these extraordinary times. However, we have taken the difficult decision to close the physical shop to the public from today. This is to ensure the safety of staff and customers and will continue until further notice.
The good news is that you can absolutely still shop with us. We will still be in the shop Monday-Saturday, available by email and on the phone to take orders, give recommendations, hear how you are and update you on our current views on the important things in life: tea, biscuits and of course books.
We also sell gift vouchers that can be used at a later date.
