At first glance, Storyopolis seems like a regular old boutique bookstore. That is, until you see the masterful way the staff puts together book gift baskets they lovingly call "book bushels."

Storyopolis is, by their own admission, a place about storytelling, both literary and visual. Their brick and mortar building is decorated with lots of children's book artwork, and their staff are experts on both the content and the visuals of myriad kids' books. Their store showcases storybook illustration and editorial art along with the best in children's literature for babies to teens.

While they offer storytelling time and in-store events, they are best known for their amazing gifts baskets. No matter what age or interests, the staff at Storyopolis are guaranteed to pull together an out-of-this-world gift. They have pre-designed packages like the ones featured here, but they are also willing and able to custom design a basket. You can even include a framed print or original illustration in your gift, or reading accessories like chairs or plush toys to snuggle.
