No, Nancy, No!

By Alice Tait
Illustrated by Alice Tait

Nancy and her sausage dog Roger are ready for a day out in London! But is London ready for naughty Nancy?

From Alice Tait, illustrator of the iconic London Range, comes a stylish, action-packed lift-the-flap book – the perfect introduction to the capital city for first-time sightseers! Blending her joyful London scapes with the story of a mischievous little girl, Nancy, and her long-suffering dachshund, Roger, Alice creates a wild and calamitous chase by boat, bus and bike across all of London's most famous and best sights – from Buckingham Palace to the Tower of London… With over fifteen flaps throughout, an incredible pop-up Nelson's column and a fold-out map, young readers will delight in this interactive adventure, and will love joining in with Roger's catchy refrain: “NO, NANCY, NO!”

  • This is the very first time Alice's highly-recognizable London art has featured on the picture book page!
  • This story is inspired by, and dedicated to Alice’s younger sister who, as a child, sometimes couldn’t help but be a tiny bit naughty, too! (Look out for her portrait hanging in the final scene...)
  • There are plenty of funny, silent visual narratives to discover throughout. Nancy is chased by the victims of her naughtiness throughout – and she doesn’t even realize!
