London Hat Hunting Mission

Welcome to my stop on the London Hat Hunting Mission tour.  Hope you find a useful hat to help Mr. Globe over here!

Four little Londoners, Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth, come from a different cultural background, are good friends living in London. They are travelling to the iconic places around the city in search of magic hats to cure Mr Globe’s headache.

 The book is illustrated with a mix of real life photographs of iconic places in London and digital illustration so children can have a vivid visual experience of London and at the same time open up their world of imagination.

Review 1

This is some serious cuteness overload!  Do you see the graphics in this post?  From the gorgeous, artistic cover to the darling dolls who are traipsing all over London, I loved this book.  I think I need to buy the hardcover as it will be a great addition to my my kids’ library.

I lived in London for a few years and this book brought back some delightful memories for me as well.  I worked at St. Paul’s, had fun riding the London Eye, ate a few too many curries in Brick Lane and enjoyed roaming the many museums and libraries.  The photography and illustrations used to showcase some of London’s most famous venues are beautiful and clear.

The narrative is simple and effective.  There is use of rhyming but it’s cleverly done and not forced.  The story itself is very interesting and informative as the dolls go off in search of magical hats to help ease Mr. Globe’s headache.  The hats and the dolls themselves are representative of the diversity of people and cultures in London today.  The message is one of embracing one another without the narrative being a soapbox for the author.  Well done.

There are two London maps.  One at the beginning and one at the end of the story.  You better pay attention while reading because you’ll have to retrace your path through the English capital!

This charming story easily wins 5 espresso shots!
