Advent calendars - snap them up now!

Penguins! Penguins! Penguins! From the success of the movie 'Happy Feet' to the scene stealing ones in 'Madagascar', penguins really are everywhere this year. This follows on from the hugely popular 365 Penguins by super duo Jean-Luc Fromental and Joelle Jolivet. This pop-up house features the house and family from the story and behind each window lies a little penguin surprise! Sure to delight fans of the black and white antarctic birds!

 Who could resist The Gruffalo's Child at Christmas? The much loved Gruffalo is pictured here with the curious Gruffalo child, who loves to hear the story of the Big Bad Mouse! Try to spot the familiar characters from the original story as the Gruffalo's child from when he explores the woods on a wintery cold night.
Caroline Gardner have delivered some beautiful advent calendars yet again this year, with their usual quirky styles and vibrant colours, they are surely to put a smile on your face in the exciting run-up to Christmas!

Open this calendar up to discover a busy street scene with lots and lots to colour-in and look at. Little windows reveal a little picture to colour every day in the run-up to Christmas! Little characters are busy about there day in this fun scene. A lovely calendar for creative little ones, which also stands upright for display.
We also have the Jame Ellis designs in which are so wonderfully sweet and gentle, perfect for a special gift. A lovely nativity scene and also a Christmas tree design that is laden with decorations, which makes waiting for the 25th that much harder!

Christmas windows

We are all Christmasy here at The Golden Treasury! We thought that we would share our wonderful London themed Christmas windows with you. We took inspiration from the wonderful London 3D expaning skyline book from Walker Books and have created two windows of familiar sights around town.

We hope you like them and have been enjoying them as you pop in and walk past! We're very proud at The Golden Treasury to be a London independent bookshop, so glad to be in such an amazingly diverse city and we love our position in the heart of Southfields.

Thank you to Jo at Walker Books for providing the excellent London skyline cut-outs!

Halloween winners!

We had a record number of entries for our Halloween colouring copmpetition this year. Thank you to our excellent little artists, the entries were inventive, super creative and suitably spooky! Here are two photos to two of our winners Cathlyn who won a special mention prize for excellent creatvitiy and little Luke. Although he isn't smiling, he was actually really excited to receive a prize, just camera shy!
