Lisa Goes to England by Patrick Adams takes young readers on an adventurous and exciting journey. Lisa and siblings Daniel, Holly, and Jonathan visit England where they stumble upon interesting places and enjoy adventures. The children are excited to land in London, the biggest city in England. They are excited just thinking about seeing the castles, bridges, and the Ferris wheel. Lisa, Holly’s magical stuffed animal, changes into a pink flying horse with big wings and she plans to take the children to meet the Queen. They fly over London and see a lot of wonderful sights. The story introduces children to the sights and sounds of England and the places of interest there.

It is a good book that will encourage children to learn about new places and will enable them to develop an interest in traveling to distant lands and discovering the customs and cultures there. Lisa, Holly, Jonathan, and Daniel are real and relatable characters and young readers will be able to identify with them. Illustrations always form an important part of any children’s storybook and this book also makes the concept clear with its charming illustrations. Apart from telling readers about the important places of interest, the story has an adventurous angle which makes the story fascinating. It is a good book to have in school libraries because of its educational content, and teachers and educators can use it for read aloud or story-telling sessions in classrooms. I cannot wait to go with Lisa, Holly, Jonathan, and Daniel to discover another country! What about you, children?
