But once in a blue moon, strange questions might pop up.

Between Tick and Tock
‘High above the bustle of the city,
are eyes that watch, and hands that know,
it’s time to pause the clock…
and for one tiny second between tick and tock, the city stops!’
Take your time over the everyday details of life in this sensory story experience of ‘Between Tick and Tock’ by Louise Grieg and Ashling Lindsay. Led by our Creative Resident Myra Loke, discover how this immersive story comes to life with the help of everyday items and live foley (reproduction of everyday sound effects). Kids aged 4 – 9 will also make and bring home a sound instrument to use with their own stories!
Witness how everyday objects can bring stories to life through our residency programme, demonstrating how stories can be livened up at home to create an environment where kids lead the play experience!
Twice every year, we hold a book fair in the B1 Atrium of FORUM The Shopping Mall, in the open space several floors below our own shop. While it might all be the same mall, the customers that we get at the book fair are sometimes shocked to hear that we’re actually from the bookshop upstairs, having never realised that there was a bookshop upstairs, much less that we have been there for 3 years and more or even that we had taken over the space from a bookshop that today is no more.
