Mamatoga and Northshire Bookstore are teaming up to add even more fun to your visit to the Children's Floor of their store at 424 Broadway in Saratoga Springs with some great scavenger hunt fun! In honor of Baby Talley's arrival, a teensy glass fox named Tally Ho! (pictured above) has hidden himself in the Northshire Bookstore Train Town (located on the Children's Floor). He has some horses and hounds hot on his little fox tail, so he'll be moving around Train Town quite a bit, but if your child comes to the children's checkout desk and says "Tally-Ho!" and can correctly name where he's hiding, he or she will get some nice loot! While you're there check out some of these best sellers this week!

And our family's current favorite can also be found on the Children's Floor at Northshire Bookstore...
Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble.
The award-winning team behind Those Darn Squirrels! has created an unforgettable, laugh-until-salsa-comes-out-of-your-nose tale of new friends and the perfect snack.
