As a family of four spend a day exploring London, fun, child-friendly poems introduce readers to our wonderful capital city, and all its secrets. Well-known landmarks like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye, plus inescapable features like rain and taking tea, all get Patty Toht's witty treatment. Non-fiction facts provide more information about the poetry subjects, while rising star Sam Usher brings them to life with his signature style and humour. This gorgeous celebration of London will be loved by both tourists and those who call the city home.

"attractive pen-and-watercolor illustrations of the places visited on the tour, with verse, mostly rhyming couplets, in styles well-suited to each attraction.....A fun...introduction to the famous city."--Kirkus Reviews * Kirkus Reviews *
"Vivid and fresh, the ink-and-watercolor illustrations will engage children with action and lively details within scenes of the city's iconic places. Viewers will enjoy searching the pictures for the comical little raven that follows the family from one destination to the next. While travel guides for children are increasingly hard to find, here's a great option for introducing kids to London."--Booklist * Booklist *
