A beautiful picture book telling the story of three small children, a dog and a cat about to go on holiday..
Travelling by steam train…
On arrival at their destination, they chat to a flower seller...
and a hurdy-gurdy boy.
They spend a long time gazing at the toys in the toyshop window
before going to play in the park.
Then it's off to the cake shop for tea with grandpapa.
I know some people might think the animals have no business being in the cake shop never mind sitting at the table, but it’s my favourite picture. Grandpapa looks like a kindly old gentleman. The children are incredibly wholesome and the animals well behaved. Even the waitress is smiling.
