    Default Where to buy Steve Parish children's nature/animal books? BigW/ABC shop?

    Has anyone see these books in a shop anywhere? I don't want to buy online.

    I have looked at the Pascal Press (the publishing company) website, they do have a list of stockists, but unfortunately they do not specify which range of products are sold where - they also publish things like HSC study guides.

    On the lists of stockists I notice ABC shop and BigW, I don't suppose anyone has noticed these books there by any chance?

    I don't know about ABC shops, but Big W should be able to order them in for you if they're something they usually carry (at least, I worked at a Big W a few years ago, and we could at the time). Could be worth asking.

    I have always seen them at post offices. Sometimes only one or 2 books sometimes a whole stand.

    Thanks guys - Australia Post isn't carrying Steve Parish stuff anymore unless they are independent stores, but it's only a recent thing so I will still check and see!

    Would try to order them in, but they are for my daughters birthday on Wednesday..... left it a bit late!

    I met Steve Parish a few days ago and was inspired to start collecting his book for my kids - he is an absolutely wonderful man

    Most of the Steve Parish books we own have come from zoo/aquarium gift shops. If there is one near you perhaps it would be worth checking out?

    No fun things like zoos or aquariums near me, or airports! And not on the sunny coast either (unfortunately!)

    But I think there is a National Geographic store around, so will give them a call and ask. And also check Big W.

    Thanks so much for all the suggestions!
