London Hat Hunting Mission
Four little Londoners, Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth, come from a different cultural background, are good friends living in London. They are travelling to the iconic places around the city in search of magic hats to cure Mr Globe’s headache.
The book is illustrated with a mix of real life photographs of iconic places in London and digital illustration so children can have a vivid visual experience of London and at the same time open up their world of imagination.
I would like to thank the author Winnie Mal Tselikas, One Dear World and blog tour organiser Rachael Gilbey for the ARC in return for an honest review.
The London Hat Hunting Mission is a delightful celebration of diversity, friendship and our multi cultural society. I loved the simple charm of the book and the way it tells young reader’s and their parents, that difference is to be celebrated and cherished.
The use of London as a backdrop is prefect, because within it boundaries many cultures live next to each other and the story is able to incorporate and introduce children, to their capital’s wealth of attractions and it’s citizen’s nationalities.
The story is full of bright and bold pictures which will attract and keep a child’s attention and probably make them desperate, if they haven’t already been, to visit London. The dolls Hope, Jun, Parth and Lea make charming characters and guides around London.
The book radiates a sense of adventure and will I believe help readers to appreciate a world where every child is celebrated. As it says on the inside page, it is For a world that appreciates the uniqueness of every child.

About the author.
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.
