9780370327112: The Wonderful World Book

Are you sitting comfortably with your seatbelts fastened? Then we are ready for take-off. Meet Earthworm and Airplane, your hosts, who will take you on a round-the-world journey (and maybe even into the solar system!) With the colourful and inventive paper-engineering that was used to explain the international languages of multiplication and music, the author and illustrator team, Maizels and Petty, have decided that it is time to get to grips with Geography, and their book helps you to discover that it is indeed a wonderful world! Their trademark enthusiasm helps to explain the mysteries of oceans, continents, mountains, rivers, countries and their inhabitants. An entertaining and absorbing read with ingenious pop-ups and moving parts, this book will launch you into the real world.

About the Author:

Kate Petty lived in Cornwall with her husband, Mike, before tragically dying from cancer in May 2007. She was both an extraordinary writer and an extraordinary person. The author of a number of novelty and pop-up books, including the innovative The Great Grammar Book and The Wonderful World Book, Kate was also involved in creating amazing books for the Eden Project children's book list. Jennie Maizels studied illustration at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design, and graduated in 1993. The Great Grammar Book by Kate Petty was Jennie's first children's book and has sold a quarter of a million copies. She is the illustrator of six other books in this pop-up series, including The Global Garden, The Super Science Book, The Wonderful World Book, The Magnificent Music Book, The Terrific Times Tables Book, The Perfect Pop-Up Punctuation Book, all by Kate Petty. She is also the author of Finger Food for Babies and Toddlers (Vermillion, 2003). Jennie lives in Hampshire with her husband and two children.
