  • Voted Best Children's Bookstore by City Pages in 2010. If youre up for a surprise or two, give the youngsters a gentle shove through the little purple door to Wild Rumpus Books
  • Look for wild (and tame) animals. Be sure to look up at the ceiling, too.
  • A must see with your kids! This quirky little bookstore has a pint-sized entrance for your children. Animals of all kinds are around every corner.
  • Local bookstore. Amazing backstory. Lots of animals wandering around. Gets books before Barnes&Noble. Has the Wild Rumpus book clubs pre-read and review books and buys what they think are the best.

  • Coolest bookstore I've seen! Kid sized door, animals and the most fun set of kid's books!
  • Amazingly diverse selection of books in a wonderful browsing/buying environment. #chickens
  • Simply wonderful bookstore. Lots of animals.
  • Credibly helpful staff!! Great book selection. I called some bigger book stores and non of them has the book I needed and Wild Rumpus did & they held it for me. I really like they organize the books.
  • A magical place with lots of animals. Great for the child at heart of all ages. Wonderfully helpful staff also.
  • I wish I could read children's books still, because this place is so rad. It features a rotating cast of creatures; you might get lucky and see a chicken!
  • There are always friendly animals to see
  • Cutest kids book store ever! They have kitties and a chicken! Yeah, really!
  • Awesome animals & kid-friendly atmosphere!
  • Not good if you have cat allergies but really fun for kids!
  • This store is filthy, and there are critters everywhere. I find this disgusting, but kids love it.
  • Lots of animals and a great selection of kids books!
  • Wonderful selection of books ranging from infant to young adult. Look up to see the ice breaking canoe on the ceiling. Pet the ferrets, chinchilla, chicken, and Thomas Jefferson the tarantula!
  • Wonderful children's bookstore. Books and pets galore...the kids particularly enjoyed petting the chicken, ferret, and chinchilla! No one wanted to pet the tarantula...
