The High Street
The High Street is the third book by celebrated British illustrator and designer Alice Melvin. A winner of the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award, Alice Melvin has outdone herself again with yet another charming, and quintessentially British, story.
Sally is on the High Street. She has a list of 10 items she needs to buy including a Persian rug and a stripy jug. Following Sally from the sweet shop to the florist, readers can open the flaps of the book to see what¿s going on inside each of the shops she visits.
Should those wild animals be upstairs in the pet shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr Kumar¿s China Shop? Can Sally find everything on her list?
The combination of Alice Melvin¿s charming illustrations and delightful rhyming verses ensure The High Street is destined to be a children¿s classic.
