The author, Mike March, is a full-time writer and editor specialising in geography. He has written many children's information books for publishers in both the UK and the US.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-5--This attractive title, written in easy-to-read, short paragraphs, will appeal to elementary readers and students with reports due "tomorrow." The book opens with a geographical map showing landforms and major cities. Smaller maps that illustrate rainfall, population density, agricultural regions, natural resources, etc., are interspersed throughout relevant chapters. Pie charts and graphs are also used to illustrate ideas in the text. Interesting, color photos adorn the pages, and lavender "Web Search" boxes highlight sites for further research. The pages are busy, but the information is neatly laid out and well organized. The one weak point is that the author avoids addressing any of China's major problems. All in all, though, this is a well-done, user-friendly addition.--Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL
