I am on vacation this week in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN. Tonight we stopped in the quirkiest, best stocked, most fun kid’s bookstore I’ve ever been to. Wild Rumpus. The magic starts with a small purple door set into the full-size one for pint-size customers to enter. The magic continues when you are greeted by one of the several Minx cats that stroll around the store with confidence. But the best part is Bellina the chicken who struts around freely, browsing for the perfect book to read. There are several other critters – guinea pigs, lizards, chinchillas, birds, fish. I would go even if I didn’t have a little person.
