The Wild Rumpus Bookstore in Minneapolis is a magical, addictive space. The books run from board books for infants to a vast array of YA literature. Every book a child (and adult) could desire is here – from the Little House books, Lord of the Rings, Captain Underpants, Golden Books, Dr. Suess, and a myriad of gorgeous picture book. Children can enter through their own mini-door and are greeted by the store cat. And chicken. And (in cages) ferrets, rats and birds. The decor is eclectic and inviting. A magical upside-down boat hangs on the ceiling, a playhouse is full of scary stories and there are comfortable chairs for dawdling dotting the store. Take an anti-histamine, then spend a rainy afternoon exploring this incredible store.
