Description: Sumptuously illustrated with eighty maps from the British Library's unrivalled collection, this gorgeous children's book whisks its reader around the globe. Like that of Jules Verne's famous hero, the journey begins and ends in London, plotting an eastwards route with stop-offs at some of the world's most fascinating places. There are extraordinary details to pore over, as well as stories about how and why these maps were made, and by whom. Fascinating snippets explore each place in more depth, revealing its history, famous people, landmarks, wildlife, culture or customs. Helpful fact files provide at-a-glance information to broaden geographical knowledge.
