Nelson ’n’ Deck and Friends
How the Adventures Began
by C. M. Gillott

The Nelson 'n' Deck and Friends adventure stories are all about making London Fun for Kids with large, full colour illustrations on every other page to bring the story to life.

Presented in a fun and subtly educational way, this is the first in the series of Nelson 'n' Deck and Friends adventure stories for primary school children introducing them to all the wonderful sights and places in London to see and visit, in a bright and colourful way that children can relate to.

'How the Adventures Began' introduces you to all central characters of the series and lays the foundation for the follow-up books in the series.

11- year old Jack and his younger sister Keira reluctantly move to London with their parents, but on their first day, they accidently stumble across magical new friends whilst sneaking around the London Transport Museum - Nelson the funny-looking Pigeon, Deck the red open-topped double decker bus as well as Cab the black London taxi. It is the start of many wonderful adventures for them all over London with their new found friends.

With fun play-on-words names for the supporting characters that adults will appreciate, this is a story that can be enjoyed by the whole family whether you have been to London or not.

To be enjoyed over and over, this book is perfect as a gift to give away or to keep as a memento of your previous or forthcoming visit(s) to London.

We bought this book for our grandson, Jayden, and it is really great. Although he is only two years old, we read him the story and he loved the bright, colourful illustrations throughout which kept him interested in the book.

My 9 year old son, Brandon, loves this book and the way it brings everyday recognisable icons such as buses, taxis, pigeons, red phoneboxes and places in London to life in an original,fun and colourful way. When is the next book in the series coming out?

by Keith L

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Nelson the pigeon the best. I had not been to London before I read this book and I have since been with my mummy and daddy who showed me Nelson's Column - which was great. I learned a lot from this book and can't wait for the next book.

Our 8-year old daughter, Carys, thought your Nelson 'n' Deck book was Awesome!...whilst giving it two thumbs up! She is now asking us "When are we going to visit London?" Good luck with the book & its many sequels!

My 6 year old daughter, Ellie, really enjoyed this first Nelson 'n' Deck book. She loved the bright, colourful pictures and learning about all the different, interesting characters...especially Deck the big, red bus. Although as a family we have only been to London a few times, the book has brought back really good memories of fun days out in the fact we can't wait to go back!

by Ellie's Daddy - Chris Wood

"I like the story about Keira and Jack and Nelson 'n' Deck and the nice pictures too"

by Joseph Ginns aged 5 and a half

This book was great! Not only was the story really interesting, but we learnt lots of things about London, which made us want to go and see them in real life to find out more!! Nelson and Deck were really funny and made us laugh!
