Hello! I’m Kari, lover of books and on a mission to slowly fill my home (and everyone else’s!) with stories! Following the completion of my degree in English Literature and History, I began a career in the book industry that spanned 15 years. During that time, I found the greatest joy in helping readers discover their next favourite story and, most importantly, helping parents navigate the world of children’s books. I knew I wanted to do more, and The Curiosity Cupboard was born. This is my corner of the world, where I can spread my love of books and help more parents raise readers.
