I loved the illustrations in this book. They reminded me of those of Helen Oxenbury, a favorite of mine. They are beautifully detailed and invite the reader in. The text goes well with the visual. There are rhymes to engage young ones.
What follows is a lovely tour of London. Travel to The Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye, The Thames, The British Museum and many more well-known destinations. The pages on Trafalgar Square offer a search and find puzzle for extra fun.
This book would be a great way to acclimate a child to London or to relive a favorite trip to the city. I know that I very much enjoyed my visit.
Note: at the end of the book there is a section with more detailed information about the places mentioned in the book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto-Frances Lincoln Children’s Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
