Visiting England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales? Don't miss Narnia, Wonderland, Hogwarts and Middle-Earth
If you're planning a trip abroad--or just a flight of fancy into literature's best-loved magical lands--"Once Upon a Time in Great Britain" is a wonderful chance to read all about the creation of your favorite children's books. This book is both a practical travel guide for your family vacation to the UK, and a terrific source of armchair-travel fascination.
Each chapter covers classics such as "Peter Rabbit" and "Paddington Bear" for the youngest tourists, "Alice in Wonderland, Kidnapped" and "The Secret Garden" for the older kids, and C.S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles and J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books for everyone.
Read about the real chocolate factory that made such an impression on the young Roald Dahl, or the cozy pub where C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien introduced their friends to Narnia and hobbits. Treat your kids to a visit to the real "100 Aker Wood" that helped A.A. Milne create "Winnie the Pooh," or the station where Thomas the Tank Engine lives. And enjoy the many original illustrations that made the books so distinctive on their first publications.
From parents who grew up on "Wind in the Willows, Mary Poppins "and "Peter Pan" to kids who thrill to "Harry Potter, Once Upon a Time in Great Britain" is a must-have addition to the libraries of children-and adults-everywhere.
