Synopsis

Dot to Dot... by Malcolm Cossons

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?

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
