A first big, novelty board book of London landmarks for toddlers!
Marion Billet was born in 1982 in Lyon, France. She studied children's book illustration at the Emile Cohl School. Marion is widely published - around eighty children's books in eleven different countries, including the Whizzy Wheels series (My First London Bus, My First London Taxi, My First Digger, My First Tractor, My First Train and My First Fire Engine) as well as Hello! London, a push, pull and slide book of London landmarks. Her illustrations have also appeared in magazines, on stationery and toys, and on children's furniture and clothes. Marion now lives in Paris.
The push, pull and slide mechanisms are easy to use and allow
toddlers to join in all the big city adventures. Whether you are
looking for an action-packed virtual tour of London or a way to
share memories of a first visit, there could be no better way to
learn, look and travel * Lancashire Evening Post *
Hello! London is a great board book, could be a reminder of a trip to London and offers lots of discussion points. We've really enjoyed reading, exploring and sharing our own memories. . . a lovely addition to any bookcase. * over40andamumtoone.com *
The text is simple with a maximum of just a couple of sentences per page, so it is ideal for younger reader with shorter attention spans. There is also rhyme to grab the children's attention when listening. Even very young toddlers would enjoy the rhyme and simple story of this book, but the interactive elements and inciting London scenes mean that there is plenty for older toddlers to enjoy too. I definitely think that this is a board book which can offer more longevity than most board books could, and it is really lovely. * intheplayroom.co.uk *
Hello! London is a fantastic book as there's so much to look at and talk about. Perfect for Londoners or those just passing through, there are lots of landmarks to look at. This is a sturdy book and my 2 year old adores the fact it's interactive with things to push and pull. Hopefully it should last her rough little hands and give her lots more pleasure. * the-gingerbread-house.co.uk *
We loved how beautifully illustrated this book is. It is lovely and bright with lots of illustrations which provided great talking points. With simple push, pull and slide actions, you can lift Tower Bridge up and down, make the London Eye go round and even see the Queen at the palace. The slide mechanisms have been cleverly implemented. Eva is two and a half years old and she simply placed her little finger in the holes and smiled as she could change the picture with a simple slide. * lovedbyparents.com *

The book is action packed, full of things to talk about, from people on the bus - mums, dads and babies - to having a picnic in the park by the River Thames. For the pre-schoolers, colours and shapes can be discussed and readers can pick out their favourites. * Armadillo Magazine *
