The High Street - Lift the flap book

TATE Publishing


ABOUT the product

A Persian rug, a stripy jug, a cherry tart, a candy heart...

Follow Sally's journey down the High Street as she shops for the items on her list. Each page introduces a new store, a bakery, a hardware store, an antique store, the fruit and vegetable store... and when you lift the flap, you get a peep inside the shop.  Each shop is intricately depicted in its illustration from the shop keepers to their workshops upstairs, like chocolate bombom machine, making it a joy for parents and kids to pour over every detail. 

The High Street is beautiful and notable, like all TATE books, for its High production values. It's a celebration of the fine art of craftsmanship and township. This is a real tribute to the high street (or main street in the States). 

It's also a book that encourages creative thinking and children's interaction. Good for your memory, Sally has a list so what does she need to get? And building logic, what shops carry which items?

Hard bound book, measures 17.6 cm (6.9 inches) x 26.5 cm (10.4 inches) and has 52 pages
