Miss Llewellyn-Jones goes to town

Written by Elaine Forrestal and illustrated by Moira Court


Miss Llewellyn-Jones takes Teddy shopping – with disastrous results. Teddy takes off on an adventure of his own, and it takes all his ingenuity to find his way home. A delightfully rhythmic text and gorgeous, quirky illustrations make this a book to read again and again.

Illustrator Moira Court was shortlisted for a Crichton Award for Best New Illustrator by the Children’s Book Council for Miss Llewellyn-Jones.
