We love visiting Alison Lester’s shop, as much to revisit our memories of books like Magic Beach, as to buy our daughter a new book (or three)! Absolutely worth a trip to fish creek to visit here and a cafe or two!

I've loved this artist and writer since my children were small. Visiting her gallery shop was a huge privilege and a wonderful experience.

My Grandchildren walked into this shop and immediately sat down and read a book. They knew some of the books and we bought two lovely books. The illustrations are impressive and great for wall decorations.

Happened onto this wonderful bookstore while staying in Fish Creek in order to visit Wilson Promontory. I was somewhat familiar with Lester's work, but didn't realize how prolific she is. Will share her books with grandchildren and favourite young people in our lives!

Full of books and art work by Alison Lester, this is a treasure trove for adults looking to buy books for kids and kids to get adults to buy books. A charmingly laid out space with room to lounge and read as well.
