The Wonderful World Book by Kate Petty


The Wonderful World Book by Kate Petty

Are you sitting comfortably with your seatbelts fastened? Then we are ready for take-off. Meet Earthworm and Airplane, your hosts, who will take you on a round-the-world journey (and maybe even into the solar system!) With the colourful and inventive paper-engineering that was used to explain the international languages of multiplication and music, the author and illustrator team, Maizels and Petty, have decided that it is time to get to grips with Geography, and their book helps you to discover that it is indeed a wonderful world! Their trademark enthusiasm helps to explain the mysteries of oceans, continents, mountains, rivers, countries and their inhabitants. An entertaining and absorbing read with ingenious pop-ups and moving parts, this book will launch you into the real world.
