Big Ben is chiming; it’s quarter to eight and
London is calling - we mustn’t be late.
We jump on a bus where an oyster’s the fare and
Over the river to Parliament Square!


From the creators of A Possum’s Tail comes another rollicking rhyming adventure. Taking in all the major sights and sounds of the British capital, London Calls zooms past parks and palaces, monuments and museums at a pace that readers of all ages will find exhilarating.

In this thrilling tour, led by two of the city’s best-dressed residents, a pearly grandma and her granddaughter, we make the acquaintance of the Gherkin, the Shard and the Eye, not to mention a whole host of other characters who make London the rich and diverse city that it is today. Expressing all of the energy, history and excitement that London has to offer, London Calls is both theperfect introduction to and memento of an unrivalled city.

Gabby Dawnay is a writer, poet and artist. She sub-edits and is a regular contributor to Okido Magazine. She is also a script-writer for children’s television.

Alex Barrow is a London-based illustrator. He is the Art Director and a regular contributor to Okido magazine. Okido has been adapted as a TV series for CBeebies, the BBC’s Pre-school channel, and is currently in production.
