The Lovereading4Kids comment

There are familiar places and faces in this charming life-the-flap book. It stars Nancy, a little girl with a penchant for mischief, and her dog Roger, on a day out in London. Outside Buckingham Palace they spot two little children (with a corgi, hint, hint), who drop their teddy; the race to catch up to give it back leads all over the city. Lifting the flaps on each page reveals the cheeky things Nancy does, from knocking over a dinosaur at the Natural History Museum, to joining the penguins in their enclosure at London Zoo. When she and Roger finally catch up with the children they get an invite to tea – at Buckingham Palace (remember the corgi?) but even there Nancy can’t resist playing a trick or two. A breezy story with masses of appeal and an excellent first guide to London too, there’s even a fold out map. ~ Andrea Reece
