Sasek caputures the vibrant culture of London in this classic children's picture book.
Sasek's quirky illustrations capture everything from the London Buses and the Houses of Parliament to the markets and pubs.
'And at the end of your picture of London there should
come a mention for that faithful friend, your umbrella!
Because this is London!'
The sense of humour keeps this book from being anything but dull as do Sasek's illustrations which now have a valid retro feel to them. Sasek covers London in detail, pointing out the obvious and not so obvious, and it's these intelligent observations which keep it interesting. This is a great one for those who devour non fiction and enjoy discovering new places.
