Product description

Amazon Review

Big, bold and beautiful illustrations, packed with detail and colour and coupled with a rhythmic, poetical text make The Year in the City an absolute pleasure to read over and over again as each time more details, missed the first time round, jump off the page and add further depth to the story of the city as it bursts into life through the seasons.

Deserved winner of the Primary English Book Award, this totally absorbing and enchanting true- to-life view of "the big smoke" will mesmerise young readers while letting them eavesdrop on the lives of city folk. An absolute gem. (Ages 4 to 7) --Susan Harrison


As the year turns, the city changes. No two months are the same: the snow and ice of January; the wind of February; March and spring-cleaning; April and the bustle of the Easter holidays; golden October and Hallowe'en; and December with its Christmas lights, carol singers and shoppers.
