Baker & Taylor
An informative guide to everything British, from the Beatles and Stonehenge to Welsh lingo and royal history, is enhanced with colorful illustrations throughout.

Perseus Publishing
From Arthur to Zero Degrees Longitude, this unusual alphabet book offers a multifaceted portrait of British culture and tradition. Included are people, places, and things familiar to many readers ? the Beatles, Stonehenge, Wellington boots ? along with the decidedly unfamiliar Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerchwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, a railway station in Wales. Helen Bate’s imaginative, brilliantly colored illustrations contain a wealth of intriguing detail to engage and stimulate young minds. Further information on each topic is included at the back of the book, making ABC UK as suitable for older children as it is for those just learning their ABCs.

& Taylor
