The High Street

Alice Melvin


With its combination of delightful rhyming verses with Alice Melvin’s charming illustrations, The High Street is destined to be a children’s classic.

Sally is on the High Street. She 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.
