Story connections between Peppa Pig, Winnie the Pooh, Pixar’s Soul & Beatrice and the London Bus

Dec 22 2020

00What do Peppa Pig, Winnie the Pooh, Pixar’s Soul & Beatrice and the London Bus have in common? Well, a lot actually.   

In 2015 I came across a fun, witty, humorous inspiring children’s book series set in London titled Beatrice and the London Bus (Volume one, two and three) written by Francesca Lombardo and published by Daily Fairy Tales, a little London-based, independent publisher.  I immediately fell in love with it and felt compelled to include the children’s book series in London Mums’ list of the top ten children’s books about London.  Beatrice is a contemporary Alice in Wonderland, who makes her dream of driving a London Bus, but not just any bus, the only talking London Bus in London that people with a special gift can hear talking, come true. As the two drive around the city every Sunday, he introduces her to a world of famous speaking buildings, London most famous landmarks, that all have their desire, secret wishes, and problems and Beatrice will resolve many of their problems but also will make some of their dreams come true!
