This is the kind of book you just want to keep for ever. It is in a very large format and has fantastic maps in a distinctive and intricate style, in a limited and subtle range of colours. It has 52 maps with information on geography, culture, people, animals, plants and more.
There are loads of interesting details - it is more about the pictures than the words. It's a book to sit down and talk about with your child. Although it is probably aimed at 7-12 year olds, it will fascinate younger children and be treasured by older ones. It fully justifies its price of £20 and (as a Story Pot bookseller) I have sold it regularly, particularly as a special present.
