Four little Londoners, Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth, come from a different cultural background, are good friends living in London. They are travelling to the iconic places around the city in search of magic hats to cure Mr Globe’s headache.
The book is illustrated with a mix of real life photographs of iconic places in London and digital illustration so children can have a vivid visual experience of London and at the same time open up their world of imagination.
Children making their way around the diverse areas of London in a part-educational, part-tourist guide adventure in London? Do I really need to write more for this review? Really?
Mr Globe has a headache so a group off friends head off around London to find magic hats to help cure it. And so their cross-London adventure begins…
With a mix of pictures and photos, this has colour, vibrancy, love, friendship, adventure, and diversity. It also has a lovely story and some words in other languages thrown in just in case. It is a lovely story, and my children adored it. As did I. I cannot recommend it enough!
About the author
Winnie Mak Tselikas is a believer in diversity. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she studied engineering, worked in commercial sales and in 2011 switched to education upon moving to London. There, she met her half-French, half-Greek husband and they had a son, who now has family in China, France, Greece, HK, the UK and the US. Winnie considers her son to be a world citizen rather than of a particular nationality or culture. Inspired by her family and London’s diversity, she founded One Dear World and created the lovely adventures of Mr. Globe and the little Londoner dolls.
You can connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
