Magic Tree is an independent bookstore where the employees really know their books. They have survived big box bookstores and the internet for a reason and that is that they are a fun store with friendly and helpful employees.

I can't say for sure, but the other reviewer must have gone there once and on an off day and even so, I've never had an employee refuse to help with anything. I've frequented the store numerous times over the years and have attended their special book events and author signings and always enjoyed the kid friendly atmosphere and convivial staff. There is a small manga section in the back and a couple tables of adult novels in front but their main inventory consists of picture books, middle grade and young adult novels as well as nonfiction books. They also carry some educational toys and also plush animals and some unusual gift items.

Go for the books and the atmosphere. Ask questions. Browse and enjoy.

Less than Magic. This store is terrible. The store was cramped, unorganized, and the employees were lazy and refused to help us find what we wanted. Never go there.
