The Face Behind The Business

Michelle Peters

Hi, my name is Michelle and  I am the founder of Bear Hunt Books.

Before opening a bookshop I was a children’s book collector. This hobby has taken me all over the country visiting book festivals and events and looking for collectors copies. When Covid hit, I needed to find a way of earning a living (my other business has gone into hibernation), so I used the knowledge I have gained and opened an online bookshop. You can ask me for book ideas, I have lots and the books that I stock have all received amazing reviews.
