Overview

Orchestras that serenade shoppers with Strauss. Perfume departments with scents from the sea. Sumptuous chairs built specially for dads. If only real stores could be as much fun as Dinsmore!

Author William Boniface and illustrator Tom Kerr have created this engaging new children's book whose clever rhymes and colorful drawings are certain to delight everyone from two to two hundred. In a style that's enchantingly humorous, Welcome to Dinsmore gives both little and big readers a new way to look at the world's possibilities.

As the book unfolds, we accompany the charming narrator of Welcome to Dinsmore as he guides our tiny hero through nine floors of the finest items money can buy. Cosmetics that beautified Helen of Troy - dolls that speak Russian and study high fashion - bottomless purses - carpets that fly. All this and more can be found at Dinsmore.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A young boy enters the world's greatest department store, the Dinsmore, and is given a tour of the various departments on all nine floors. His guide notes the look on the young lad's face and asks what it is he is seeking and then sends him off to find the place with a caution to "remember to flush!" A silly book with a bit of bathroom humor.
Lauren Peterson
"Welcome to Dinsmore, the world's greatest store! / Whatever you search for, we've got it, and more." The doorman of an imaginary department store greets a young boy who wanders in out of the rain and takes him on a magnificent nine-floor tour of fascinating items and services. The text is lengthy, and beginning readers will undoubtedly have difficulty with the often flowery language and references to unfamiliar people and places ("We've fragrances formerly lost to the past, / Like eau de cologne of King Louis the Last" ). As a read-aloud, however, the book can't be beat: the rhyming text and humorous cartoon illustrations are delightful.
