LoveReading View on A Walk in London

This walk gives readers a wonderfully close-up and intimate look at some of the best sights of the great city.  While the landmarks are accurately positioned and defined, the artist’s impressions bring a distinct and personal flavour to them.

A little girl and her mum get off the bus at Westminster. Their tour begins with the great clock of Big Ben. From there they walk through parks and past palaces; they enjoy street shows and good food; they delight in the river and all it has to offer before hurrying back to the starting place in a ferry. Readers can get an overview of their journey and trace their steps in the wonderful, fold out panorama.

A Walk in London Synopsis

A wide-eyed girl and her mother explore London's busy streets and towering views in this child-friendly tribute to an incomparable city. London - the perfect place for a girl and her mother to spend the day! Follow them as they board the classic red bus and begin a whirlwind tour of some of London's most iconic landmarks. Try to climb the awe-inspiring lions at Trafalgar Square, take in the ritualistic Changing of the Guard , experience the whispering gallery at St Paul's and - if you're lucky - you may even spot the Queen! In this paean to Britain's bright and bustling capital city, Salvatore Rubbino's fresh, lively paintings and breezy text capture the delight of a young visitor experiencing the wonders of London first-hand. And of course, what's London without a little rain? This book is visually stunning, evoking all the colour and excitement of the capital from a child's perspective. It is packed with nuggets of information about London that both enlighten and entertain. It is a delight both to those who know London well and to those who have never visited.
