Children can make their own beautiful pop-up book using this imaginative kit, a little glue and by following simple step-by-step instructions. The result is a series of magical gardens - French, Japanese, Arabian, tropical and dreamlike - through which a mysterious tiger wonders. Brief texts introduce readers to the various types of gardens. Inspired by the late artist Derek Jarman's unique garden on the coast of Kent, England, this marvellous do-it-yourself book will provide readers with a product they can return to again and again - and perhaps even the tools to create their very own pop-up book design.

Antarctica was only discovered 200 years ago and since its discovery, explorers, sailors, and scientists have been travelling to the world's only uninhabited continent to learn all they can about its icy environment. This book follows the story of a group of researchers on their half-year stay in Antarctica. Their goal was to examine the animals, plants, atmosphere, weather, and fossils in the area. Through full-page illustrations, children will experience the work and life of these explorers and scientists as they study penguins, whales, and seals, measure the depth of the ice, chart wind speeds of up to 186 mph (300km/h), examine old volcanoes, and withstand some of the lowest temperatures ever recorded. Kids will also learn about Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott, the legendary explorers who first set foot on Antarctica. Equal parts thrilling adventure and in-depth exploration, this book is an unforgettable illustrated expedition to Antarctica that is sure to satisfy the boldest bedtime traveler.

Young children love a good game of "I Spy with My Little Eye." In this beautifully designed book they are playfully challenged to find details "hidden" in some of the world's greatest paintings. On each double-page spread, a large reproduction of a masterpiece such as Kandinsky's Heavenly Blue, Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Rousseau's The Dream or Breugel's Children's Games is paired with a list of items to search for: a dog, an umbrella, or a ball, for instance. A brief age-appropriate text makes connections between the art and the child's own environment. Arranged chronologically, the pictures expose children to an endless array of artistic styles, periods, and cultures. Although the appendix contains solutions to the challenges, every child knows that the fun is in the hunt. Filled with hours of joyful discovery, this art book sets the stage for greater artistic appreciation as children grow older.

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. She lives in Nuremberg, Germany. SELLING POINTS: Colourful pages inspire children to use their own imagination and travel through imaginary worlds filled with surprising details. Readers are taken away to 15 unique places, including hidden nooks, far-flung islands and marvellously beautiful depths, that fall betwen reality and dreams.
