About the Author:

Anita Lobel's name is synonymous with the best in children's literature. She is the creator of such classics as Alison's Zinnia and Away from Home, and she received a Caldecott Honor for her illustrations in On Market Street. She is the creator of two books about her cat, Nini, One Lighthouse, One Moon (a New York Times Best Illustrated Book), and Nini Here and There. Her childhood memoir, No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War, was a finalist for the National Book Award. Anita Lobel lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-This whirlwind journey around the world in 26 letters offers much for the eye in its arresting watercolor-and-gouache paintings. The boys who make the trip (there are no girls) are featured in a variety of architectural settings, one per page, from the great Pyramids at Giza to Moscow's Cathedral of St. Basil. All of the places are explained in a one-page glossary. The format is a stage set, replete with curtains and an appreciative first-row audience of youngsters. As an arty travelogue for parents to read with young children, this is an attractive choice. However, many of the verbs are forced and would be difficult for youngsters to comprehend, such as "Oliver oscillated in Odense." Some of the scenic places pictured, e.g., Xian, China, may be unfamiliar to all but the most sophisticated who, like the author, have had a wide variety of travel experiences. There is, unfortunately, a static quality to the elaborate stage settings that form the backdrops for the characters. Although they reinforce the effect of a performance, they detract from the reality of the world tour. A book that's unlikely to find a wide audience.
