About this deal

James is also a presenter of family classical concerts, and takes part in many unique events at music festivals all over the country. Find photos of different places in London and use these as inspiration for your own art work (see Resources below). As a storyteller he has devised and performed a series of sell-out concerts for children with the de Havilland Philharmonic Orchestra, and has participated in prom performances at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. This is a delightful story of Katie and her younger brother Jack visiting London with their Grandmother. Love this great story adventure book as Katie and one of the Trafalgar Square lions see all the best sights of London from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace.

He has also created designs and illustrations for the Kirov Mariinsky Opera of St Petersburg and in 1994 won the New York Times award for one of the ten best illustrated books on the year (The Boy and The Cloth of Dreams). On their travels with the lion they visit St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge and some of the sights along the South Bank like The Globe Theatre.When they get to London Grandma is so tired that she falls asleep so Katie and her brother go off and explore all the sights of London. James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. I know most of the landmarks Katie visits, and the older granddaughter brought it home from her own visit. 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!

A wonderful introduction for young readers to delights of the Tower, Buckingham Palace and a host of London landmarks. My only criticism would be that London looks a lot cleaner in this story than how I remember it when I lived there! In a city with so much exciting and interesting aspects, we should encourage our children to embrace it,, and this book presents an opportunity to do just that.It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. 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.

We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc. Join them on a whirlwind tour of the sights, including the Tower of London, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace! Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performed in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and live art.They show a city full of life and movement – people and vehicles on the city streets, Tower Bridge swinging open for the river traffic and the London Eye turning as Katie, Jack and the lion rise high above London. When Katie and her cousin Jack visit London with Grandma, they don’t think there’s much to see and do. This uses the same similar concept in most of James Mayhews books when Katie whilst with her grandma and brother visit a museum, Scotland etc. It can be used in so many ways in English including adjectives, speech and diary writing for example, and also as a cross-curricular resource in Geography (capital cities and landmarks) and Drama (freeze frames for example). Slightly older readers might enjoy Me, the Queen and Christopher by Giles Andreae and Tony Ross There are also lots of other adventures involving Katie.

Many more titles have followed, and the series sells in museums and galleries all over the world, from the Met in New York, to the Uffizi in Florence, the Louvre in Paris and beyond. I think this would be most suitable for those in the early years at school, although some sensible older toddlers might also enjoy it. While their Grandmother is asleep they experience a wonderful adventure when a stone lion comes to life and gives them an insiders guide to London. There isn't anything about the new buildings and developments for the Olympics, but as 2012 is the Queen's Jubilee it works well for any little ones who are interested in the Queen and where she lives. Katie and her brother are taken on a tour of the sights of London, they take in Trafalgar Square, The London Eye and Buckingham Palace in the company of their friend the Lion.A quick romp (sometimes just a fleeting glance, sometimes more exploration) around some of London's best-known tourist attractions, including Trafalgar Square, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace. Featuring many of London's key landmarks, this storybook has become a bestselling introduction to London, and is perfect for children visiting the city for the first time. Brought this book for my baby niece who lives in Australia, so she can always remember her auntie Katie who lives in London.
