Author(s): Roxie Munro
Seen from outside and then inside, London's sights reveal the majesty that makes this city so intensely historic and uniquely civilized. Awakening all of the senses with her sweeping perspectives, vivid colours, and abundant details, artist Roxie Munro whisks readers to London-and what a feast for the eye that great city proves to be! Munro balances her playful sense of fun with taking the reader to the highlights of one of the world's great capitals. Some of the big tourist spots are pictured-Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament-but her inclusion of smaller venues, such as a New Oxford Street scene in the rain, is inspired, giving readers the daily flavour of London life. From riding atop a double-decker bus down Regent Street to watching the Queen's Royal Procession, The Inside-Outside Book of London is a taste of all things London for children and tourists of all ages.
Roxie Munro is a fine artist and an award-winning author-illustrator of more than 35 books for children, including her acclaimed Inside-Outside series. Fourteen of her paintings have been published as covers of The New Yorker magazine.
