Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Spring 2014)
Each map in this attractive book reveals an engaging mix of tourist sites, animals, traditionally dressed people, important figures such as Gandhi and Homer, products and cultural items (e.g., Japanese manga, Russian nesting dolls), as well as facts and figures. With a retro look reminiscent of old illustrated atlases, this browsable volume will lead to wanderlust.
