This beautiful atlas is a celebration of the unusual events, objects and people that make our world such a fascinating place.

This unbelievable round-the-world adventure will take you through all of the planet’s continents and countries, and on the way you’ll get to see just how diverse the world can be. The beautifully illustrated maps feature key aspects, such as borders, capital cities and major rivers, and are perfect for engaging young readers.
