‘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 meet the Gherkin, the Shard and the Eye, plus a 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 the perfect introduction to and memento of the city.
