Picture Book of the week: My first book of London by Ingela P. Arrhenius

My first book of London by Ingela Peterson Arrhenius is a stylish big picture book about London aimed at pre-schoolers. They can learn about the British Capital in a fun way and visit all the famous sights at the turn of a page.

My first book of London Hardback edition is gorgeous and makes for a great gift for any young visitor to this city. Red buses, black cabs and Buckingham Palace – there’s so much to see in London! Kids can visit the Beefeaters guarding the Tower, leisurely lions at the Zoo, soar high on the London Eye and travel down the Thames on a boat cruise simply by flipping through the pages of this book which has striking illustrations of everything from iconic landmarks to the traditional full English breakfast.


My first book of London challenges you to spot landmarks in London and makes for a very special gift for any London lovers (even if they are grown up – I personally love it).

Author Ingela P. Arrhenius worked as an art director in Stockholm before her career as an illustrator took off. She’s since been commissioned for creating print patterns for fabrics, wallpaper, stationery as well as posters, product design, home accessories and toys. She’s passionate about retro style, typography and colour. Herprevious’ books for Walker include Animals and her mini pop-up titles Ocean and Things that Go. She lives in Stockholm with her husband and two boys.

My first book of London is published by Walker Books, which is known for many award-winning authors, illustrators and brands including Anthony Horowitz, Cassandra Clare, Lucy Cousins, Anthony Browne, Polly Dunbar, Patrick Ness and Where’s Wally? Including interesting facts and snippets of history, children will discover new words and places with this colourful picture dictionary.
