London Hat Hunting Mission by Winnie Mak Tselikas ** Review and Giveaway**

Welcome to my stop on the London Hat Hunting Mission Blog Tour. There is a great Giveaway for you today. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.

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.

This is a great book to share with young readers as there are lots of opportunities for discussion and language extension within the story.  It is colourful with bold pictures, some of which show actual London landmarks. There is a lot to stimulate a child's imagination within the text so I would say it is better for sharing during the day rather than as a bedtime story. I like the Hat Hunt Map at the beginning and end of the book and it is an useful aid during the story. This book has an important message about diversity within a multicultural environment and should lead to some thoughtful moments.

Cat and Mouse say - Get hunting those hats and see where they lead you!

 About the Author

Winnie Mak Tselikas is a believer in diversity. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she studied engineering, worked in commercial sales and in 2011 switched to education upon moving to London. There, she met her half-French, half-Greek husband and they had a son, who now has family in China, France, Greece, HK, the UK and the US. Winnie considers her son to be a world citizen rather than of a particular nationality or culture. Inspired by her family and London's diversity, she founded One Dear World and created the lovely adventures of Mr. Globe and the little Londoner dolls.
