Go for the books but stay for the animals! If you have kids, you must make a stop at Wild Rumpus. This is a great lazy afternoon kind of place. Visit the cats, chickens, birds and mice and you won't want to go home. Don't forget to make a stop in the bathroom and turn of the light to see the fish tank behind the mirror!

This is truly the most fun bookstore ever. There are live animals, visits by authors, everything you could want to tempt your children to read. They will be captivated by it and so will you. Yes, it's loud, crowded at times, and more than a little crazy. I don't find those to be bad things.

You will not believe it when you walk into Wild Rumpus Book store to find many live animals running around like cats, dogs, parrots, chickens and more! The children are delighted when they get to visit THIS book store! I really got a kick out of seeing the special "small" door for children to enter. Yes, it is wild in there but there are so many great books that you can put up with it. The employees are always helpful and friendly which makes for a wonderful shopping trip. If you have not shopped at the Wild Rumpus Book Store, I think that it is time to do just that, with your children, of course! Enjoy!

PROS: Outstanding!
CONS: Noisy

This is definitely not like B and N or any o fthose stores. This is a charming bookstore that has alot of books: picture books; sections on nature, world religions, creative activities and fine arts, etc, There are many events that happen here too like guset authors coming in to read. Kids love this place too.

This place is crazy! It is a bookstore and a zoo all in one! They offer fun story times (although they are very popular and get crowded) as well. The staff are knowlegeable and friendly and the kids will be well entertained while you shop! There are animals running around all over the place! (Watch out for allergies!). What a fun and crazy idea! The kids had a blast and it would be fun to show out of town guests. It is definitely one of a kind!

This place had great ideas on how to entertain children. Pets running around is an interesting idea. I guess it gives kids a "hands on" approach when reading a story about an animal. However, I was not happy to see that about sixty kids showed up for story hour. It becomes impossible to do anything due to the large crowds.

This is a wonderful kids bookstore! They have a variety of children's books and the staff there is always ready to make a suggestion. This is a very kid-friendly place. They also have pets for kids to see and play with.

Exactly what a kid's bookstore (or any bookstore, for that matter) should be. It really is a Wild Rumpus - dogs, cats, rats, lizards, ferrets, hens (yes, my friends, chickens) all running around. There's a treehouse hideaway, little doors for little people - I hate to use the word - but there is definitely a magical feel to the place (ug- but it's true).

HUGE variety of book selections, events, readings....definitely not only for kids. staff/owners always have suggestions for any reader.

If you have never been here, you MUST go. MUST MUST MUST.

PROS: LIVE POULTRY
CONS: none
