Trafalga Square Lions

"Trafalgar Square is a public space and tourist attraction in central London. At its centre is Nelson's Column, which is guarded by four lion statues at its base. There are a number of statues and sculptures in the square, with one plinth displaying changing pieces of contemporary art. The square is also used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, such as the celebration of New Year's Eve."

I bought a cute children's book at Buckingham Palace gift shop called, "Katie in London." It talks about these two children who want to tour around London with their grandmother. The grandmother sits down on a bench and falls asleep because she is so tired. The kids walk over to one of the lion statues and tells him that they are sad they can't tour London because of their sleeping grandmother. The lion volunteers to take them and give them a tour. They jump on his back and go for a ride around the city. He shows them all the cool sites and they have a blast together. When they get home, the grandmother wakes up and says, "Ready to go for a tour?" The kids tell her that they are too tired and fall asleep on the park bench. It is so cute!
