The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fabulous picture book packed with fascinating details about London's most famous sights. Like a colourful trip around a Monopoly board, this trendy information book is packed with detailed illustrations and children can see how many pictures they recognise and learn about those they don't.

Synopsis

Big Picture Book of London by Rob Lloyd Jones

Learn about London and her many famous landmarks from Buckingham Palace and The Tower of London to Trafalgar Square and the museums in Kensington. There are pages on London's parks, transport and sporting events, and two stunning fold-out pages show all the bridges and landmarks along the River Thames.

• London is one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world, packed with buildings that are recognised the world over, and this book is a great way to learn about the city and its history, ideal for both children and adults.

• Readers will feel as if they're on a London tour bus as they take a pictorial tour around this vibrant city. Travel around Westminster, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul's while examining the stylish illustrations. Featuring a fold-out view of the River Thames, this is a book to explore for hours and hours.

• Carefully selected websites, accessed via Usborne Quicklinks, allow readers to discover more facts about London and its history.

About the Author

Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be a fireman. Or a polar explorer. Or a deep-sea diver. And sometimes a pirate too. But, when it came down to it, he didn’t much like fire, or ice, or sharks, or even swords. So he decided to write about them instead. Since then, he’s written several books on subjects ranging from animals at war to the history of Islam. He loves it. But he still dreams about being a fireman.
