Saturday 13th August was National Bookshop Day and I was glad to visit Harry Hartog’s amazing bookshop at Bondi Junction, there to spend a happy half hour.

But I also want to acknowledge  and send greetings to all those wonderful bookshops, especially those who specialize in children’s books who help to keep Australian children’s literature alive.

Here’s what I found!
