Great Streets of the World From London to San Francisco

Author: Mia Cassany Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/09/2019

What makes a street interesting? Is it the architecture, the landscape, the people, the businesses, or the history? In this collection of sixteen charmingly detailed illustrations, kids can discover the answer for themselves. Spanning nearly every continent to explore a fantastic variety of cities, sixteen double- page spreads come alive with color and activity. In San Francisco, people and vehicles make their way up and down Lombard Street's twists and turns. On Hotagayo Street in the quiet, wintry Japanese town of Shirakawa, snow slides off the deeply pitched roofs, while in Bamako, Mali, the massive and crowded marketplace shimmers with heat. Kids will delight in the quirky architecture of Prinsengracht Street in Amsterdam and try to identify all the neon lights of Broadway. Whether looking down the dizzying slope that is the Rua da Bica in Lisbon or zooming on a motorbike through Hanoi, Agusti Sousa's irresistible illustrations capture each location's unique vibe. Mia Cassany's texts will spark discussion about what makes a place special, while encouraging readers to wonder what's happening on the streets of their own hometowns.
