Since we opened in 2011, Little Island has served thousands of young readers, grateful parents, enthusiastic educators, and cool aunts and uncles. Little Island Comics us staffed by the same team that worked at our previous location in Mirvish Village.

Our Little Island booksellers also work for The Beguiling’s Library Services business, which has been helping school and public libraries curate their comics collections for more than 15 years. Comics as a medium has become a mainstay of educational library collections in the last decade, and parents and educators will appreciate the expert help in selecting titles that address curriculum objectives, learning challenges, and a wide variety of reading levels.
