Author Bio –
Winnie Mak Tselikas is a believer in diversity. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she studied engineering, worked in commercial sales and in 2011 switched to education upon moving to London. There, she met her half-French, half-Greek husband and they had a son, who now has family in China, France, Greece, HK, the UK and the US. Winnie considers her son to be a world citizen rather than of a particular nationality or culture. Inspired by her family and London’s diversity, she founded One Dear World and created the lovely adventures of Mr. Globe and the little Londoner dolls.

I jumped at the chance to review this book because it looked exactly like the kind of book my would enjoy. I read this book with my little one and it was well received. It has a fun and attractive cover which my child liked and feels well put together and durable. There is a page for the child to put their name which I think is a nice touch and my child enjoyed the map of London at the beginning and the end. From an adult point of view it’s well written and conveys an important message in an entertaining way for kids to understand and Winnie packs a lot of information into the book in an interesting way.
The different rag dolls were liked by my child and I liked looking through all the different pictures of London such as St. Paul’s Cathedral and Chinatown.
It is a fun book that I think a lot of children will enjoy and I would recommend. I am going to donate the hard copy I received to my local children’s group and I would definitely look for more books by Winne for my child.
