About this deal

My only criticism would be that London looks a lot cleaner in this story than how I remember it when I lived there! Not everyone will be acquainted with London and its famous sighs, children new to London will enjoy it, children who have visited these sights will enjoy revisiting them through this story, and a class teacher could use it as an introduction to a visit into central London. as long as you have a ready excuse for why the Trafalgar Square Lion isn't waking up to fly you around the city any time soon!

At Trafalgar Square they meet a talking stone lion, and he takes them on a wonderful tour of the city taking in such sights as The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye! James Mayhew has a series of books about Katie that are usually introducing children to a particular artist.I'd like to think that if I had visited London as a child, I would have read this book beforehand to get myself hyped up! This one is introducing the city of London and I think it would work well for both children familiar with London as well as those who have never been. Not only is it informative about the features of the incredible city, but the illustrations allow the reader to create vivid images in their head.

The Lion is wonderfully large and golden and has a fabulous flowing mane, and all of the sights are instantly recognisable and very detailed. This picture book mingles fantasy with information most successfully… a lively introduction to some of the main London sights within the context of an appealing story…The text keeps up the pace of the story and includes a lot of convincing dialogue.It follows the adventures of Katie and her younger brother Jack who take a tour around London on the back of a golden lion from Trafalgar Square.
