Alice Melvin is the talent behind this beautifully written and illustrated book. I just loved everything about it. The wonderful, read-a-loud rhyme accompanies some gorgeous fold-out drawings as Sally visits the High Street to buy all the things on her shopping list. The High Street seemed quintessentially English to me.
My five year old daughter loved the way that the pages opened to reveal what was inside each shop. The ending has a delightful twist as Sally tries to find the last thing on her list- a yellow rose.
