Ruby Red Shoes is a great favourite with my junior girls so they are all going to mighty impressed when this goes onto our New Books stand.

There is something completely charming about RRS, both the writing and the illustrations.  These are just totally endearing books.

Ruby and her Baboushka love travelling and this trip to London is chockfull of everything iconic about that amazing city. Red buses and letterboxes, HM the Queen, toasted crumpets for a cosy tea, squat black taxis and beautiful shops and parks abound.

Little readers will learn much about London as Ruby explores it in the gusty windy weather.  Despite the excitement of the visit with its many iconic sights and of course HM and the corgis, Ruby knows that home is always the best place of all.

Where will she and Baboushka adventure next? I know many little girls who will be wild with wondering.

Highly recommended for readers from around 7 years upwards.
