This interactive and colourful atlas takes young readers on a hands-on journey all around the world. Each page turned brings a new continent to life with a total of more than 100 flaps to lift, beautifully detailed illustrations, and fun facts about different cultures, species of wildlife and places to visit along the way. Written by Kate Baker and accompanied by wonderful artwork from Liz Kay, learning about the world has never been so fun or easy. Starting your globetrotting adventure in the frozen Arctic tundra of North America, you’ll discover where the world’s longest skating rink is located, where you can swim with pigs and what exactly ‘dog mushing’ is. You’ll then travel on to South America to meet Amazonian Indian tribes, anacondas, toucans and more. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, you’ll explore Dracula’s spooky castle, the world’s biggest snow fort and the story behind Norway’s trolls before peeping inside the treasure-filled tomb of Tutankhamun and meeting some of the animal kingdom’s world record breakers in Africa. Next, you’ll visit the mesmerising Taj Mahal, see where cuddly giant pandas hang out and scare yourself silly with the legend of the ‘Kappa’ river monster in Asia, then head down under to Oceania for vast coral reefs, Polynesian gods and famous explorers. You'll finish your intrepid journey with a trip to the planet's coldest continent, Antarctica, for tales of South Pole adventurers, wild weather and more.
