This fine, beautifully illustrated book does everything an information book should. Its subject is the amazing expeditions taken by men and women over the centuries. Some subjects will be familiar – Shackleton, Marco Polo, Amelia Earhart – while others will be less well known, such as Ibn Battuta who travelled though Africa, Central Asia, Afghanistan and India in the 1300s. Travelling, he’s quoted as saying, ‘turns you into a storyteller’, and the stories told in this book are proof that truth is at least as gripping as fiction. Young readers will be left not just informed but inspired to find out more, and with a bigger view of the world. ~ Andrea Reece

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. So wrote Saint Augustine almost 1,700 years ago, and his words are as true now as they were then. Read your way around the world with some of history's greatest storymakers. As well as the usual suspects, explore some lesser-known but equally amazing journeys, including that of Nobu Shirase - who raced Scott and Amundsen to the South Pole - and Henry Box Brown - a slave who posted himself to freedom.
