Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An innovative format and breathtaking concept meet in this trip around the world and back again. This 32-page book fan folds out into a single panorama that takes the reader from India to Ecuador and from Iceland to Romania. Each natural scene seamlessly runs into the next, incorporating each areas natural beauty and indigenous wildlife. On the reverse of the fanfold, the same scenes and locations are shown at night. Its a beautiful and memorable look at the world from differing perspectives, eye-catching and completely unique.

Review:

"Jolivet's (365 Penguins) b&w illustrations, evocative of block prints, create a montage of world ecosystems in this oversize accordion-style book. In Akurey Island, Iceland, a whale splashes, emerging next to a sleepy Turkish village where 'the air smells of thyme and sage.' On subsequent pages, the Hong Kong cityscape transitions into a Romanian meadow, which morphs into the Senegalese savanna. After the final page, the journey begins again, with images of each region at night on the reverse side. Capable of being read like a traditional picture book or unfolded into an enormous chain of images, the book radiates a subtle message of global interconnectedness. Ages 4 — up. (Apr.) " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
