Praise for Through Time: London

“While the initial impression is that this is a browsing book, it is in reality more of a research tool, reliant on text to explain the famous city's metamorphosis.” —School Library Journal

“[T]his colorful, large-format volume offers a rich visual experience. . . .Laid out as though seen from an airplane, the large, detailed pictures are bolstered by smaller circular pictures and inset maps of the broader area, as well as labels, captions, and a few informative paragraphs of text. [An] . . . attractive resource.” —Booklist
