I honestly have NO idea who Alison is! But what I can tell you is that I enjoyed my foray into this gallery. I really had no idea what to expect... so with no expectations I could just enjoy what was there. Initially what struck me was the unusual art on the walls... almost cartoon like...children's-book-cartoon-like! And then I noticed the greeting cards... I realised that Alison had to be an author and clearly the more I looked, she also had to be an illustrator.

Not having had young children around me that would have perhaps led me to a world of discovery into her books... I simply enjoyed the artwork in the store. So while I only left with whimsical impressions and some beautiful greeting cards... I would still recommend this to anyone with a child-like enjoyment of art and literature... OR well ... children!

Paradise for book lovers!
Jan 2019 • Couples
A must-do if you visit Fish Creek! Packed with award-winning author/illustrator Alison Lester's books, original illustrations and limited edition prints. John was a very welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly staff member who is obviously passionate about his job, the township and the works of Alison Lester. Take your time to explore the gallery as there's something for everyone and every price range. Highly recommended!
