Tolly has a special place in our hearts. Thankfully, retailers around town have also found this artistic and inspiring children’s book to be treasure, and stock it on their shelves. We’d like to give a shoutout to these wonderful Portland shops and bookstores that stock Tolly, among other great books and products.


Green Bean Books is a whimsical children’s bookstore in the Alberta Arts District. They have story times in multiple languages, summer camps, and even a deck and a garden! If you and your children haven’t visited this adorable bookshop, put some of their events (such as their monthly “Read to a Dog” event) on your summer to-do list.
