The Lovereading4Kids comment
This charming picture book is an enchanting evocation of life in London at the time of the coronation of George V, by the much-loved and award-winning illustrators for children, Shirley Hughes. Perfect to share with younger children but also a great picture book for more confident readers to bridge the gap between picture books and chapter books.
