Topsy and Tim Visit London by Jean Adamson

Lovereading view...

Loveable twins Topsy and Tim make the perfect guides to some of the very best sights in London. The Twins happily enjoy indoor and outdoor sights – and the excitement of travelling in between them - in this easy to follow introduction to some of London.


Topsy and Tim Visit London by Jean Adamson

Trusted and well-loved pair Topsy and Tim find fun and adventure in the real world. Their engaging stories are reassuring for young children having first experiences of their own. In Topsy and Tim: Visit London, the twins have an exciting trip to the capital city. They see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, see the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, and even meet the famous Beefeaters at the Tower of London.

Topsy and Tim books have been beautifully updated with contemporary artwork. Topsy and Tim remain instantly recognisable to parents while in a fresh style that will appeal to a new generation of fans. These wonderful books deserve a place on every child's bookshelves.
