London Hat Hunting Mission - a children's picture book




London Hat Hunting Mission
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 fun book and Mr. Globe is adorable. I enjoyed the kids working together and that each has different interests and skills. I wish their skills and talents would have been used more prominently in each task. The names of and descriptions of each hat are a good jumping off point for discussion and more research. 
The book colors really POP. I can see this being even more fun if read and acted out with the dolls.



Author Bio –
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.
