It’s Logan’s stop on the blog tour for London Hat Hunting Mission today! A vibrant read about the importance of helping each other.
Here’s the blurb …
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.
Logan’s thoughts …
When Mr Globe gets a headache, his friends, Hope, Jun, Lea, and Parth go on a mission around London to find him a selection of hats to help cure him.
I liked the real pictures in this book. London is cool and I want to go there. They went all the place and saw all the best bits. I love the bridge from Chinatown and the colourful hat from Portobello Road, the party street.
I liked that Mr Globe’s friends wanted to help him get better and that they had a super mission to find the hats to make him feel better.
I really love the map of London too. It shows us where everything is and how far they had to go to find all the hats.
I think this book tells us that you have to work together to help other people.
My thoughts …
What a lovely story. As Logan said, when the friends team together, they are able to complete a mission to help one of them.
I loved that all the characters are from different backgrounds and as they travel around London on their mission, they tell us lots of interesting facts about the places they visit.
Overall, the London Hat Hunting Mission is a great book for little ones, showing them the capital in a different light to how it may be shown in other books, looking at the diversity that makes our capital so wonderful, but mainly showing children that working together is important.
The illustrations, combined with th real world pictures work brilliantly together and I’m certain that this book will getting a LOT of reads in our house!
