Mayhew's illustrations are stunning, with amazing detail ... there is so much to see and spot on each double spread ... a wonderful introduction to the city of London ... a lovely read indeed
London comes to life in this magical adventure
Mingles fantasy with information most successfully ... pushing at the boundaries between the real world and the world of the imagination ... Colourful and extremely detailed illustrations add greatly to the appeal of the book
So much to see on each page spread that children will be enthralled and wrapped up in this book for many readings and re-readings ... Brilliant stuff
James Mayhew knows just how to capture the imagination and he depicts all the famous sights, beautifully drawn. This would make a great souvenir of a child's first trip to London.
Children's books set in London are always popular and this is a particularly charming story of a girl having an adventure riding one of the Trafalgar Square lions.
A wonderful introduction for young readers to delights of the Tower, Buckingham Palace and a host of London landmarks.
