Today we ducked into The Children’s Bookshop. @thechildrensbookshop_brookline
is not a big store, and what it lacks in fancy decor it more than makes up for in its lovingly curated, wide-ranging, and meticulously organized selection. As they say, don’t judge a book(store) by its cover!
Despite me proclaiming only yesterday that we were going to wait on the second Harry Potter, guess what came home with us? Yes, that’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. (No, we apparently didn’t own a copy of it; perhaps it ran off with books 3, 4, and 5, if we ever had physical copies of those, too.) Due to a run on the earlier HP books, only the new illustrated edition was available today. Honestly, that might work out in our favor because even though we still plan to wait a little to read it we know more frequent illustrations are only going to help as we try to keep the longer list of characters and more complicated plot straight. This was my first glimpse of these new illustrated editions, and they look amazing. .
