About this deal

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! Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF.

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. You might like to look at Katie and the Waterlily Pond by James Mayhew and If you'd like to extend Katie's trip to London to Christmas, we can recommend Katie's London Christmas. When Katie and her cousin Jack visit London with Grandma, they don’t think there’s much to see and do. A beautiful story to capture any child if looking to use London as a topic or about to visit London itself. The lion takes them on a wonderful tour of the city taking in such sights as The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye!From Peter and the Wolf, to Scheherazade, James has worked internationally with many different orchestras and musicians, creating illustrations in time to music. We have all extracted joy from the notion that one of the lions at the base of Nelson's column comes to life and carries Katie all over the place.

James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989.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). Find photos of different places in London and use these as inspiration for your own art work (see Resources below). My daughter enjoyed spotting the Queen waving from her window, and as we have visited London several times it was interesting to see some of the places we have been to in a story book.

The trio take off around London, flying around with the reindeer to deliver all of the presents before the time runs out.

Together Katie and her brother Jack travel with one of the famous Trafalgar lions and take us on a journey to all these places.

He has made regular appearances at the National Galleries in Edinburgh and London and visits many schools, and arts and literary festivals. Katie and her brother go out with their Grandma one day, she asks them to sit down by the Lion on Trafalgar Square and wait for her and so the fun begins!I expect this book will bring up the children's experiences of London and places they have been with their families. 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? When Katie and her brother Jack visit London with Grandma, something very unexpected happens… One of the Trafalgar Square lions comes to life and takes them on a wonderful tour of the city including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Big Ben and the London Eye.
