Product Description

Review

'takes children aged five and above on an exhilarating tour of our capital.' -- SUNDAY EXPRESS

"A perfect introduction to the capital"
-- Mail on Sunday, 18 Jul 04

"An inspiring pictorial history of our capital, as rich and varied as the city itself."
-- Books for Keeps, Sep 04

"Contains enough scintillating fact in cheeky cartoon-strip format to keep their minds off all the fun they're having."
-- Families South East, 1 Jul 04

"It's amazing how much is packed into this book...A perfect introduction to the capital."
-- Mail on Sunday, 18 Jul 04

"There is little on London for the children's book market so this will do very well. Brassey covers from Roman times to today and includes colourful comic illustrations including the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and more." -- Bookseller Buyer's Guide Highlights, 16 Jan 04

"This is the sort of book that begs to be read and re-read on a regular basis"
-- Families South West, Sep 04

"a stimulating and accessible history for the younger reader"
-- School Librarian, Autumn 04

An inspiring pictorial history of our capital, as rich and varied as the city itself. -- Books for Keeps, September 2004

Contains enough scintillating fact in cheeky cartoon-strip format to keep their minds off all the fun they're having. -- Families South East, July 1, 2004

Book Description

Everything you wanted to know - and some surprises - about one of the world's greatest cities told in words and cartoon illustrations in Richard Brassey's inimitable style.

Bought this for my 6 year old nephew who is in love with Tower Bridge and all things London. Thought it would be a good introduction into the history of London via little snippets of information.

It's his favourite bedtime read at the moment.

My 6-year-old LOVES this book - it fits in with the curriculum at school and he loves to take it to school to show his teacher and tell her things about London.
