Welcome to
Paper Moon Books!

Paper Moon Books is an independent, female-run English bookshop for children located in the heart of Utrecht. We sell new, preloved, and rare books for all ages.

Looking for a gift for a child in your life? Adding to your own collection? Want to indulge in gorgeous picturebook art? Stop by and find a treasure to take home.

The Shop:

Nestled among the canal houses on Utrecht's Oudegracht, our shop has an authentic, historic feel whilst also being bright and playful. While parents browse books, children can draw, play, and read in our kids' corner. Families can also read together in one of our comfy chairs.

The Books: 

Our team works to bring you a variety of vintage and modern titles. We offer timeless classics, rare books and special editions, and newly published books by award-winning authors and illustrators.

Our website offers books in every category, such as wellbeing, sciences, animals, toddler books, and novels. Our shop in Utrecht has an even larger collection than what you'll find online. Searching for a specific book? Let us know!

The Community:

Paper Moon is more than just a bookstore. We are a part of the community and love to host events, such as storytime, book launches, exhibitions, and meetups.
