Miroslav Sasek has produced a most charmingly illustrated 'This is London' which, first published in 1959, proved exceedingly popular and has now been updated with an additional page of notes that bring the book into the 21st century. Apparently a holiday in Paris inspired Miroslave Sasek to write and illustrate children's travel guides to the big cities of the world. He began with 'This is Paris' and followed it up with 'This is London' and the series developed from there.

Now, more than fifty years later, those same readers are passing these stories down to their children and their children's children, and Sasek's This is series has officially reached iconic status. Collected here for the first time in one affordable volume are some of Sasek's most beloved adventures.

sasek's books are all visually lovely, no doubt about it, however they are also incredibly informative, which i quite appreciate

sasek's books are all visually lovely, no doubt about it, however they are also incredibly informative, which i quite appreciate. this book is littered with amazing images and interesting facts. on a totally unrelated note, the book smells good too, just like the library books of yore.

With the same wit and perception that distinguished his charming books on Paris, New York, and San Francisco, M Sasek presents stylish, elegant London in This is London, first published in 1959 and now updated for the 21st century.

This is London, first published in 1959, presents impressions of London with its beautiful buildings, historic . Following on the runaway success of This is New York, Universe is thrilled to reissue two more titles from M. Sasek's beloved children's travel series: This is London and This is Paris.

This is London, first published in 1959, presents impressions of London with its beautiful buildings, historic monuments, bridges, parks, shops and Piccadilly Circus, black cabs, Horse Guards, and famed Underground. This is Paris, first published in 1959, brings Paris, one of the most exciting cities in the world, to life.

These books are great for kids who travel the world. While a bit dated (with updates only in the very back), This is London still entertained us and provided a great base for heading off to visit.

sasek's books are all visually lovely, no doubt about it, however they are also incredibly informative, which i quite appreciate. this book is littered with amazing images, interesting facts, and this particular entry makes me yearn to discover the london of yesterday/today in person.

and as with all the updated printings of sasek's books, there is a welcome list of "this is the city...today!" at the end of the book with changes listed since the original printing. it is great to see both the way the city WAS as well as the present day differences.

i highly recommend this book if you are interested in either london, or simply in wonderful illustration.

I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the material and the content. This book arrived an hour ago and is an instant favorite with our kids from our twenty month old to our seven year old and their parents. I ordered a few others from the series and hope they are similar.

My son loves Dr. Who. He's obsessed with living in London. My husband thought getting a book about London would be a great Christmas gift. My son loves this book. It's a bit outdated, but it explains those things in the book. The illustrations are cute, too!

I order this wall calendar every year. It has a permanent place in my home office! I love the artwork of my favorite city that appears in this calendar.

YES love this!! If you like older books, then you will love this! If you are looking for a super colorful book that has lots of action, maybe you won't enjoy this as much. I love the simplicity of it and it describes what it's like. I've never been to London, so I'm hoping it's accurate. I have to admit, that I loved the cover and that's what drew me to buying it. :)

I’m kind of obsessed with London and this calendar is perfect. It’s so cute!
My son is possibly the youngest anglophile ever. And we are planning a trip to England, I had seen this book on Land of Nod website, but didn't purchase it because I would rather get a good bargain. I bought it on Amazon, great deal. And I loved the book. Yes, it is a bit old, well, classic. I loved that in the back it has updated information. Not only did my son love it and it gave us some great ideas of places to visit while we are there; but his grandparents who lived in England and travel back every few years were impressed by the book. I want to get the entire collection of "This Is" books.
