About Us


September 2011 saw Moby Dickens' Bookshop change ownership, and since this date there have been many changes that have taken place instore.   


One of the biggest changes is that we have decided to focus solely on stocking and promoting books for children.    We stock a large range of picture books from New Zealand and around the world, and fiction and non-fiction titles for beginning readers through to young adults.  In addition to books, we stock a number of games, craft ideas, activities, and gift items for children.


We aim to provide a personal service, and a friendly bookshop atmosphere, where you can browse at your leisure, sit down and put your nose in a book.  If you have a request for a book that we may not currently stock, we are always happy to source it for you.


We no longer take web based orders, however phone or email us your order (including your contact details) and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible.  

PLEASE NOTE: We take payment by internet banking only.


In addition to our large range of books, we also offer the following products and services:


Cards – we have an extensive range of cards for all occasions as well as wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper, ribbons etc.
