Pre-order books from Once Upon A Time!
Pre-order select titles from your family bookstore (either online or in-person) and you can receive exclusive goodies (while supplies last)! Pre-orders must be prepaid to reserve swag, goodies, signed copies, etc. You can pre-order any forthcoming title from us not shown on this list. Below is the current list of offerings. We update this list frequently, and generally if you see a title here the promotion is still available. For swag that our bookstore will be distributing, we will contact you if you place an order for which the exclusive editions or gifts are out of stock.

For better or for worse, most of us have been focused on the political news that has been breaking out of Washington, D. C. recently. If you were interested in Fear by Bob Woodward or Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff you will probably want to be the first to read The Mueller Report from The Washington Post that is scheduled for publication on March 26th. Order yours today and we will reserve a copy for you, while stock lasts.
Signed copies and swag available!
I am unable to put into words how much I loved this book. Each of Sandhya's pervious books are wonderful (When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, With Love). I read this book all in one night and was so happy with it that I sat down the next morning to write down my thoughts but I felt so intimidated by how much joy this book brought me. Strange to belive, but I just don't think my words would be able to describe to you the sweet happiness, quiet power, and gentle love in this story. All I can tell you is that this book will leave you grinning from ear-to-ear. - Jessica

"It is my very great pleasure to inform you that the Triwizard Tournament will be taking place at Hogwarts this year"
Just a beautiful, simply worded book about a young girl's summer on Deer Island as she starts to gently mature and have her first crush, including her first kiss. A sweet delight of a story that will surely resonate with tweens. - Maureen
