Meet Alice Tait - creator of the successful of the London Map range and now debut Picture Book Author with Walker Books. 

She’ll teach you, and your young ones, how to create red buses with spinning wheels and Big Ben’s with twirling hands, all interwoven with a reading of her book No, Nancy, No.  The story of a mischievous little girl, Nancy, and her long-suffering dachshund, Roger, it’s a wild and calamitous chase by boat, bus and bike across all of London’s signature sights! From Buckingham Palace to the Tower of London to the London Eye and beyond…

Suitable for children aged 6-12 and their families.
