About Nickel Books

Nickel  is a metallic chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ni and atomic number 28.  It is one of the only 3 metals to be magnetic.


Nickel is strong and ductile, and is used (as an alloy) in high-temperature metals such as those used to make Space Rockets and gas turbine engines.


This makes nickel the best metal in the known universe.


Books are brilliant.  You can learn anything from books and they can also be fun.


Nickel Books, therefore, is the best name for a book shop.


We have fantastic knowledge in all areas of children's books; fiction, reference, science, books for young and older children.


If you have to buy a gift for a child, be it a niece, nephew, grandchild, son or daughter, godchild, family friend; then we can recommend anything.  All we need is some information about the child and reason for the gift.



Email us on or call us on 07731152089 for our suggestions; which we can supply quickly and at competitive prices.
