Ruby Red Shoes to London
by Kate Knapp
Ruby is so absorbed that she turns and tumbles straight into a pile of coiffured corgis ... It’s their owner who helps Ruby to her feet and reins in her furry entourage. Then Ruby sees who their owner is … the Queen! Hare Majesty! Ruby is star-struck by the Queen as well as diamond-struck by her jewelled crown.
Ruby and her grandmother love to travel and now they are in London, the home of red buses, red telephone boxes and red letter boxes. No wonder Ruby’s red shoes feel especially at home in this wonderful city! Follow along with Ruby as she visits the sights, rides the Underground, sees snow for the first time and has a surprising encounter with the Queen!

With delicate, detailed illustrations, it’s utterly charming: think a modern Little Grey Rabbit.
