9780810983328: Panorama: A Foldout Book

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 area’s natural beauty and indigenous wildlife. On the reverse of the fanfold, the same scenes and locations are shown at night. It’s a beautiful and memorable look at the world from differing perspectives, eye-catching and completely unique.

About the Author:

Joëlle Jolivet is the internationally acclaimed illustrator of 365 Penguins, a New York Times bestseller and Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor Book. Publishers Weekly has called her books “vibrant” and “dazzling,” and School Library Journal said they are as “aesthetically impressive as they are informative.” She lives in Paris, France. Fani Marceau has worked as a teacher, copy editor, book reviewer, and editor. Panorama is her first book. She lives in Paris, France.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Originally published in France in 2007, this stunning travelogue leads readers through a journey from Bangladesh to Scotland to Antarctica and beyond. Each oversize page is grounded by a poetic fragment evoking each locale: “In the ocean, the whale splashes white foam and blue foam. —Akurey Island, Iceland.” A faint ecological bent further enriches the descriptions. But the main event is the alternately dizzying and mysterious black-and-white woodcut illustrations. They can be flipped through like an ordinary book, though the full impact is felt only through unfurling all 15 pages so that they lay flat in a seamless panorama that stretches from mountains to highlands to ocean to village. Still the fun is not over. “Night falls—it’s time to go home. In the dark, what is different?” reads the final text, prompting the reader to flip over the giant landscape to discover a notably different nighttime version of the entire vista, where playing children now sleep and prowling tigers are replaced with lurking alligators. The twisting and turning required would test the construction of any book, but the heavy-duty pages should stand up to moderate torture. To be safe, buy two. It’s worth it. Grades 1-3. --Daniel Kraus
