Description

One of the Trafalgar Square lions comes to life and takes them on a wonderful tour of all the best sights! Did you know that the Tower of London used to be a zoo, or about the now defunct London railway that transported over 200,000 people to their final resting place? As if it could have been passed down by many generations before and gets pulled out every Christmastime for a read.

These are just some of the fascinating details that Blue Badge Tourist Guide Katie Wignall reveals in this absorbing guide to the secrets of London hidden in plain sight. Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. When Katie and her brother Jack visit London with Grandma, they don't think there's much to see and do. 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!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. 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. Journeying through London's busy streets, crammed with red buses, black taxis, parks and grand buildings, we even squeeze in a visit to Buckingham Palace and see the Changing of the Guard! The book takes you on a journey from the moment Katie and Jack are woken on Christmas Eve by sneezing Father Christmas.

James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989.One of my little pet grumbles is how the British name of Father Christmas is replaced so often for the Americanised Santa. James Mayhew's first book for children was Katie's Pictures Show, (Orchard Books 1989) establishing the long running series about a child's adventures in an art gallery.

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. I know most of the landmarks Katie visits, and the older granddaughter brought it home from her own visit. Imagine that you are the Queen, looking out of the windows of Buckingham Palace and you see Katie, Jack and a lion walking past.Biography: James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. 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.
