About Us

Hello and welcome to Gobbledy Books, a brand new independent children’s outlet, where you can find a terrific selection of interesting children’s books at the lowest prices.

Even though we specialise in affordable books, we are very passionate about the benefits of reading and we hope that by offering our books at such great prices, it will encourage you to share more stories with your child.

But why Gobbledy Books?

Well, if you have ever watched a child devour a good book, as if they were consuming their favourite meal..you’ll get it.

My own personal bookselling story started when the friendly Puffin Club man visited my primary school and I became fascinated by their magical book catalogue. Ever since those days, I must say, I’ve always loved the smell the feel of opening a brand new book..and I still do even now!



There have been a few plot twists along the way on the road to Gobbledy Books though. I’ve managed a bookshop in Paris, sold Jackie Collins novels by the lorryload to newsagents in Essex, had a bookstall on Brighton Beach and finally started a wholesale business that puts interesting new books into places where you wouldn’t expect to find them.


But it was the birth of our daughter that inspired me to pluck up the courage to do this. Seeing her develop a passion for reading and the satisfaction of sharing our bedtime stories has made me appreciate children’s books more than I ever did. So I hope that our site is as much a celebration of children’s books, as well as simply being a business.

But we haven’t forgotten, when family finances are so tight at the moment, that price is REALLY important to everyone. So all of our books cost just £2.50, irrespective of the RRP, making them less expensive than certain other online giants I could mention. 

Anyhow, that’s enough about us. If you like the look of our books, please give us a try. In exchange we promise to do our best to ensure that you come back and buy some more. 

Thanks, Mark
