Picture Book of the month: The Tower Bridge Cat & The Baby Whale

Jul 18 2020

I’m in love with anything that features my adoptive city, London. I have often covered my favourite books about London and I am now excited about the launch of a new children’s book set at Tower Bridge: The Tower Bridge Cat & The Baby Whale. This ‘tail’ is perfect for primary school children, or pre-school children as a bedtime story – with wonderful illustrations that follow Bella on her adventures at the iconic landmark. It follows the award-winning prequel, The Tower Bridge Cat. I cannot wait to go back to  Tower Bridge very soon! The London view from there is absolutely incredible.
