Synopsis

Dot to Dot... by Malcolm Cossons, Neil Stevens

This new addition to Thames & Hudson's burgeoning Children's List is an illustrated flip-over picture book about a little girl called Dot from London and her grandmother, also called Dot, in New York. The pair share a birthday and desperately want to spend it together. Readers start at one end to find out Little Dot's story; flip the book over and start at the other end to read about Grandma Dot. The story follows Little Dot as she tries everything to hand-deliver a special card to grandma Dot in New York: she tries to bounce on springs across the ocean; asks birds and butterflies to help her fly; and even digs a tunnel in her back garden...Meanwhile, Grandma Dot is making a surprise trip to London, but travels the long way round. At each stopover, in Beijing, Mumbai and Rome, she gathers family and friends and buys a mystery present for Little Dot. But will Grandma Dot arrive in London in time for the big day? And will Little Dot be there?

Reviews

There s something unique about all the illustrations. This publisher knows how to create incredibly original stories that are fun and happy with crisp, simple yet lively illustrations. In a self-consciously retro style that strongly evokes children's classics such as Madeline and Curious George, the illustrations are humorous and skillfully done. There's something unique about all the illustrations.
