The High Street

Author(s): Alice Melvin

Sophisticated Picture Books

Sally has a list of ten items she needs to buy. Open the flaps to see inside the shops, where unusual things are going on. Should those wild animals be upstairs in the pet shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr. Cooper's China Shop? Can Sally find everything on her list? Children will pore over this charmingly illustrated interactive book to find out.

Each shop is depicted in Alice Melvin's trademark highly detailed illustrations that both evoke a previous age and yet remain strongly contemporary. Rhyming text and repetition of Sally's shopping list make this book perfect for reading aloud.

Praise for The High Street "A satisfyingly unique ending. The inventive format and crisp retro details will put this at the top of every curious little girl's reading list." -School Library Journal
