    Beautiful … notable for its high production values and delightfully old- fashioned, nostalgic feel … Children will enjoy poring over all the details in the pictures, and Alice's vintage-style aesthetic will appeal to readers of all ages, but this book is also a great tribute to the pleasures of shopping on the local high street, and the charm of independent shops.

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    In this Scottish cumulative tale, Sally wanders along High Street as she tries to check off items from her shopping list. Each storefront folds out to reveal a fascinating array of merchandise within, begging readers to pore over the delicious details … The cross sections of each shop will intrigue young readers while the rhyme scheme will help them gain confidence when they correctly guess what Sally finds next. After she fails to find her last item, she “trudges home on heavy, aching feet, towards the public gardens on the corner of the street….” What she discovers there gives this tale 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.
