All the latest titles from M. Sasek's beloved and nostalgic children's travel series, now in one convenient ISBN.

These facsimile editions of M. Sasek's beloved classic books from the 1960s are still timely and current in every way.  The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to Sasek's vision more than forty years later. Where applicable, facts for each book have been updated for the twenty-first century.

Following the runaway success of these reprinted classics, Universe is now offering all sixteen titles in the This Is series in one convenient ISBN.  The titles: This is Australia, This is the Way to the Moon, This is New York, This is San Francisco, This is London, This is Paris, This is Ireland, This is Venice, This is Edinburgh, This is Texas, This is Hong Kong, This is Rome, This is Britain, This is Israel, This is Greece and This is Washington, D.C.All the books in this beloved series incorporate Sasek's stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with his witty, playful narrative, making them a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember these books from their own childhood.

Synopsis:

In this work first published in 1970, Sasek swings down under, winging his readers into Sydney, with its famous bridge and space-age Opera House; bustling, modern Melbourne; colonial Adelaide; semitropical Brisbane; the garden city of Canberra; mineral-rich Perth; and Alice Springs, Australia's most famous outback town. Full color.
