Marvellous Maps

If you love looking at maps you are going to love this book.

Its a map book with a difference.

There is a collection of 52 highly illustrated maps with details not only of geographical features and political borders, but also places of interest, iconic personalities, native animals and plants, local peoples, cultural events and many more fascinating facts associated with each region.

For instance I learnt that muesli was invented in Switzerland. The Netherlands have the tallest windmills in the world and Croatia includes more than one thousand islands. WOW.

You can spend hours pouring over this book. From immense mountains to tiny insects and everything in between, this book is great fun.

They have even named a boy and girl from each country.

Would you like to know what they called the children from New Zealand?

Sorry I am not going to tell you. You will just have to come and borrow it to see!
