An Atlas of Imaginary Places Review

Featured Books for 5+ readers Featured Books for 7+ readers

Daydreamers, those who love poring over maps and imagining far-away places, and those who want their minds stretched will all love this book. Readers are taken to 14 different locations, places where nothing is impossible. This is a country where a volcano spews out bubblegum in every flavour, colour and taste; where you can draw new galaxies with your finger from the top of a lighthouse; where fish rain down from the sky onto a city built on the back of a giant whale. The illustrations are dreamy but detailed, filled with images that tease, trick and delight and there’s something new to find on every reading. ~ Andrea Reece


An Atlas of Imaginary Places Synopsis

Upside-down mountains, volcanoes that spew bubble gum, a gentle humpback whale keeping an entire city afloat. These and other wonderful worlds may not exist on Earth, but elsewhere- who knows? Each spread of this captivating book invites readers on a fantastic voyage.

Ana de Lima's whimsical, softly colored illustrations are filled with surprising details that reward close examination, while Mia Cassany's soothing narrator is a nameless fellow traveler. A jungle where the animals exchange stripes, spots, and markings each time they sneeze, an archipelago made up of dessert-shaped islands, and a lighthouse so tall you can draw a new galaxy with your finger are just some of the wild places to visit. Perfect for before-bed reading, or daytime dreaming, this stunningly illustrated book will delight young readers and encourage them to conjure their own imaginary places.
