The High Street is the third book by celebrated British illustrator and designer Alice Melvin. A winner of the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award, Alice Melvin has outdone herself again with yet another charming, and quintessentially British, story.

Sally is on the High Street. She has a list of 10 items she needs to buy including a Persian rug and a stripy jug. Following Sally from the sweet shop to the florist, readers can open the flaps of the book to see what’s going on inside each of the shops she visits.

Should those wild animals be upstairs in the pet shop? Will the plates fall off the wall in Mr Kumar’s China Shop? Can Sally find everything on her list? The combination of Alice Melvin’s charming illustrations and delightful rhyming verses ensure The High Street is destined to be a children’s classic.

Alice Melvin is a highly acclaimed young illustrator and designer based in Edinburgh. The author and illustrator of Counting Birds and An A-Z Treasure Hunt, Alice was a winner of the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award which celebrates rising talent in the field of illustration.

High in the sky above Parkville, toothfairies April and Esme Underhill are on their way to collect their very first tooth. April and Esme Underhill have never collected a tooth before. Mum and Dad always do it. But tonight it s their turn. So, equipped with a bag, a coin and a mobile phone, the sisters head for Daniel Dangerfield's house, and a very unusual first tooth visit!

A broken, old bus appears one morning, sad as a whale on a beach, right outside Stella's house. On the front of it, held up with packing tape, is a hand painted sign... "Heaven". For Stella, this decrepit old vehicle is special -this bus is "ours" - a place for everyone to be together: hold meetings, play games and share stories. But one day, the bus is towed away and Stella must fight to save not just the bus, but everything the community has worked so hard to create.
