This book from Tate Publishing takes the idea of the modern High Street and turns it into a kind of fairy tale quest for our heroine, Sally.

 

She has to travel through the High Street and collect 10 items she has to buy including a Persian Rug, a stripy jug, a yellow rose and a candy heart. The book is intricately illustrated by the award winning British Illustrator and designer Alice Melvin. Open the flaps to peek behind each shop’s façade. Should there really be wild animals upstairs in the Pet Shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr Kumar’s China Shop? A poem accompanies each of the shops embodying the concept and produce you’ll find once inside each door. The result is a charming, peculiarly English book that seems destined to be cherished by young readers everywhere.
