LoveReading View on The High Street

The combination of Alice Melvin's charming illustrations and delightful rhyming verses ensure The High Street is destined to be a children's classic.  It's the third book by celebrated British illustrator and designer Alice Melvin who was also winner of the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award.  Each shop is depicted through this charming story in Alice Melvin's trademark, highly detailed illustrations that hark back to a previous age, remain strongly contemporary but are quintessentially British. Melvin's Counting Birds is also perfect for this audience. ~ Julia Eccleshare
