Telling Tales: Scorpio Books' Children’s Bookshop


Our dedicated children’s bookshop in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch’s CBD is directly across the courtyard from Scorpio Books. All the books at Telling Tales are available to buy online here, through the Scorpio Books website.

The sunny, spacious new shop is a treasure trove for the children of Ōtautahi, and the child within us all. The thoughtful selection of books aims to ignite imaginations and a thirst for knowledge in a new generation of readers. Our team at Telling Tales believe that books, and the stories they hold, have a unique capacity to inspire and connect us to a better future.
