An Atlas of Imaginary Places (pb)

ISBN: 9783791375007

Author: Mia Cassany    Publisher: Prestel Publishing

Now in paperback, this dreamy, gorgeously detailed picture book leads children on a journey to impossible but wonderfully imagined places. Upside-down mountains, volcanoes that spew bubble gum, a gentle humpback whale keeping an entire city afloat. These and other wonderful worlds may not exist on Earth, but elsewhere - who knows? Each spread of this captivating book invites readers on a fantastic voyage. Ana de Lima's whimsical, softly coloured illustrations are filled with surprising details that reward close examination, while Mia Cassany's soothing narrator is a nameless fellow traveller. A jungle where the animals exchange stripes, spots, and markings each time they sneeze, an archipelago made up of dessert-shaped islands, and a lighthouse so tall you can draw a new galaxy with your finger are just some of the wild places to visit. Perfect for before-bed reading, or daytime dreaming, this stunningly illustrated book will delight young readers and encourage them to conjure their own imaginary places. AGES: 4 to 8 AUTHOR: Mia Cassany is the author of numerous children's books including Animalkind (Prestel). Ana de Lima is a Spanish illustrator with a background in fashion design.

Readers are taken away to 15 unique places, including hidden nooks, far-flung islands and marvellously beautiful depths, that fall betwen reality and dreams.
