Here are classic tales to inspire infant wanderlust, from wizard’s haunts to wordless worlds and the remote Australian bush
My six-year-old daughter Daphne and I love to say au revoir to our four walls and escape to Paris with Ruby the hare in Ruby Red Shoes Goes to Paris by Kate Knapp. Along with her grandmother Babushka, Ruby samples all the delights of Paris – the Eiffel Tower, Café de Flore, markets, fountains and florists. We dream of the day when we can lie in a Parisian park eating “buttered baguettes and huge peaches” so delicious they make Ruby light-headed. Heaven!
