About

The Alligator’s Mouth is an independent children’s bookshop in Richmond, stocking books from baby to late teen, as well as a small selection of cards and board games.

We often work with local schools, providing events or stocking libraries. Regular events in the shop include a storytime, bookclub, comics club and more to encourage all forms of creativity. There are frequent author and illustrator visits to look out for. In the past we have welcomed Jacqueline Wilson, Chris Riddell, Cressida Cowell, Oliver Jeffers and Axel Scheffler.

We were shortlisted for The British Book Awards Children's Bookseller of the Year 2017. The Alligator's Mouth is a bookshop at the heart of the local community with a mission to reach all readers: the confident, the beginner, and the reading-resistant.
