Sally has a list of 10 items she needs to buy. Open the flaps to see inside the shops, where unusual things are going on. Should those wild animals be upstairs in the pet shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr Cooper's China Shop? And can Sally find everything on her list? Each shop is depicted through this charming story in Alice Melvin's trademark, highly detailed illustrations, that both hark back to a previous age and remain strongly contemporary.
Alice Melvin is a highly acclaimed young artist and designer based in Edinburgh and the author and illustrator of Counting Birds and An A-Z Treasure Hunt. Counting Birds was a Scottish Book Trust Book of the Month and has been short-listed for the Scottish Book Trust BookStart scheme.
