This book of maps is a visual feast for readers of all ages, with lavishly drawn illustrations from the incomparable Mizielinskis, the husband and wife author and illustrator team. It features not only borders, cities, rivers, and peaks, but also places of historical and cultural interest, eminent personalities, iconic animals and plants, cultural events, and many more fascinating facts associated with every region of our planet. A book unlike any we have found. Will surely engage readers of all ages in the details of each country covered.
*Parental note: There are seven instances of cartoon illustrations that are either nude or partially nude. Please note these on pages 12, 18, 25, 26, 34, 71, and 73. These instances are cultural rather than sexual, i.e. the statue of David by Michelangelo, Zulu dancers, the Finns in a sauna, an Austrian fertility sculpture, women of the Humba tribe, the Warsaw mermaid, and the famous Dutch statue of a little boy peeing.
