Product description

Sally has a list of 10 items she needs to buy. Open the flaps to see inside the shops, where unusual things are going on. Should those wild animals be upstairs in the pet shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr Cooper's China Shop? And can Sally find everything on her list? Each shop is depicted through this charming story in Alice Melvin's trademark, highly detailed illustrations, that both hark back to a previous age and remain strongly contemporary.

This is one of those beautiful books that you can't help fall in love with. Probably more suitable for girls given it is a story of sally, it has been a favourite in our household since my daughter was 4 years. Story about a girl shopping with a list as she goes into shops along high street (lift the flap). Gorgeous illustrations. Love the tale to the story (the most beautiful item is not for sale- it is free for all to admire)
