Format: Hardcover
Produced by the Victoria and Albert Museum, this children's book is a gem. Perhaps it is more a collector's item than an everyday story book as you won't want your child scribbling all over the stunningly executed illustrations by Emily Sutton, but I recoomend it warmly as being in the best traddition of illustrated books for children. A lovely Christmas present for parents growing a tad weary of Maisy, The Night Garden, and Peppa Pig (worthy though all these offerings are!)

We went to the V&A today and picked up this great book which we read three times on the way home. My 5 year old daughter loves it and my 3 year old son was happy to read it too (there is a boyt with a sword included).
Clara, a young fashionista, is devastated when her brother ruins her best hat. Her resourceful mother takes her on an inspiration gathering trip to the V&A. However, every mother's nightmare - Clara gets lost in the V&A.............
The stunning detailed illustrations - particularly of London streets - add to the tale and provide plenty to discuss. The iconic London shop facades in particular are great - a naive David Gentleman style?
This book is a great introduction to museums and how items from the past inpire design.

My kids came home and played with our buttons for ages.
I suspect this book is destined to become a classic.

Really lovely story & stunning illustrations. Perfect for any little girl who loves dressing up -

Just a footnote about the Free Stickers mentioned by a previous reviewer - The Hardback version does NOT include the free stickers at the back. The Softback version DOES include the stickers though - I know this as we were at the V&A yesterday where I saw this book in softback (I have the Hardback). Hope that helps!

Really beautiful book and great story, be warned a grandma has died and is mentioned in the story - seems a little trivial when I mention it but I bought this book as a present, but when I got it home I felt I couldn't give it to them because of this. My children both love this story though - my daughter is four and son is two. Just beware if you are buying it as a present!

This is a sweet book especially if you live in London or going on a visit to the Museum.
It was too young for the child I bought it for but she'll enjoy it when she's older particularly as she loves hats.

We took this book out from our local library for our four year old who loved it so much, that we bought it for her birthday. Lovely story, beautifully illustrated and a keeper for years to come

Nice tale of Clara who's Grandma's hat meets with an accident. The ensuing story is a trip through London visiting Hat departments on the way. This will be a treasured book!
