Dorothy Butler is an international award-winning authority on children's books and reading. She has also been a successful teacher, an innovative bookseller and the much-loved author of children's books, all the while raising eight lively children with her husband Roy. Now in her eighties, in 'All This and a Bookshop Too' Dorothy shares the inspiring story of her adult life. Picking up from the first volume of her autobiography, 'There Was a Time', Dorothy eloquently writes of her many consuming interests, her friendships and her family: her early married life with Roy Butler, living in a tent on Auckland's North Shore, and later setting up a speciality children's bookstore in their home; about becoming an international reading specialist and writing her own award-winning books.

Dorothy's book is both a story of private triumphs and tragedies, and a salute to the golden age of children's book publishing in New Zealand.
