A mother-daughter journey through one of the world’s great walking cities is narrated by the younger traveler, who takes in history—the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, Admiral Nelson’s statue in Trafalgar Square—and lesser facts with equal delight: “London is Europe’s third rainiest city; a telephone booth is a good place to wait out a shower.” The team pauses for fish and chips and whispers to each other across the expanse of St. Paul’s Cathedral, where acoustics are miraculous. This classically beautiful picture book contains a gatefold illustration of life along the Thames and provides the ideal appetizer for young armchair travelers. Ages five to seven.
