Beatrice and the London Bus
Read the Review
London based Italian author Francesca Lombardo brings enjoyment, hope, courage, determination and urban culture to young people with her newly released children’s book series – Beatrice and the London Bus. Her stories resemble a modern London take of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with lots of humorous, inspiring and empowering contemporary fairy tale features and a classic feel for children and parents alike. It all kicks off from Beatrice’s dream of becoming a London bus Driver. In the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland it’s great to see another child heroine taking on a traditionally male task. She shows personality and determination, hence she is setting an example for young girls. The book series also encourages children to develop the fundamental aspects of social responsibility making them familiar with the aspects of being part of an important community, like the one of a big city like London. The book series has even received an endorsement from the Culture team at the Mayor of London’s office. They said: “We very much enjoyed the Author’s story idea and we really appreciate her enthusiasm and passion for London. We wish the very best of success to this wonderful story.” The Author is not stopping there and is currently writing BOOK 4 and 5 which will see Beatrice and the London Bus travelling through Paris, Rome, New York, Las Vegas, LA and other countries around the world (China, India). We cannot wait to read those stories! Francesca is also working in partnership with some London Children Charities for a series of activities related to the books. Beatrice and the London Bus book series is available from Amazon and www.beatriceandthelondonbus.co.uk
