The Lovereading4Kids comment

Ten different illustrators explore the culture and customs of some of the world’s greatest cities in this stylish information book. Each city is portrayed across double pages, which in turn open out, enabling the reader to discover a wealth of detail about the different cities. As well as facts and figures, often awe-inspiring, there’s quirkier information, all illustrated: for example there’s a panel on Tokyo’s vending machines, some of which dispense very unusual things, as well as on the Sens?-ji Temple; the pages on Rome tell us about the city’s artichoke festival as well as about the Vatican and the Colosseum. Each illustrator has a distinctive style well-suited to the city they portray and the book gives a real sense of the bustling character of each featured city. ~ Andrea Reece
