My Review
London Hat Hunting Mission is a super cute children's picture book about four children from London, all from different backgrounds, on a mission to find hats that will make their friend Mr. Globe feel better. 

Mr. Globe has a terrible headache, and only hats can cure him of his ailment. So the children trek all across London, visiting the unique cultures that make up the city, hunting for hats. 

Visually, the book is engaging, treating children to pictures of the various locations all around London. It showcases different cultures in a great way, educating kids on the many different people all across the globe. 

The story is easy to read and will keep kids curiously reading through, eager to see what sorts of hats the children might find for Mr. Globe. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and my son, who is very restless while reading, also seemed to like it. He sat and let me read it to him (he's 3), so I'd say that's a plus.

I'd highly recommend this book to kids and adults, especially parents. It's a great way to teach kids about culture and diversity. 

I give London Hat Hunting Mission 5 stars.

Winnie Mak Tselikas is a believer in diversity. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she studied engineering, worked in commercial sales and in 2011 switched to education upon moving to London. There, she met her half-French, half-Greek husband and they had a son, who now has family in China, France, Greece, HK, the UK and the US. Winnie considers her son to be a world citizen rather than of a particular nationality or culture. Inspired by her family and London's diversity, she founded One Dear World and created the lovely adventures of Mr. Globe and the little Londoner dolls.
