When I was a kid, the books that always outlasted all the others were the books chock full of amazing facts and figures about the very planet we live on. I was a bit of a geography / geology nut, and loved reading huge thick encyclopaedias (I was lucky enough to have access to an entire set of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and voraciously read them from cover to cover - weird kid, right?)
Children today may have an app for everything, and the internet on tap but it's actually quite soothing to note that there are still stunning books out there that serve up astonishing facts in gloriously innovative ways.
Daniel and Aleksandra are well known for producing the most intricately detailed books. Their "Maps" series have deservedly won tons of awards and now they've turned their attention to the world around us once more for a dip under the surface of the oceans, and a dig under the earth.
|Yummy yummy vegetables and gorgeous plants. Where do they come from? Under the earth of course!|
Each page is chock full of glorious detail and fascinating facts, guaranteeing that you'll be wrapped up in this book and completely absorbed by it for AGES.
|Find out all about long-dead dinosaurs by digging!|
|Want to know what happens when you flush the loo? Wonder no more!|
Charlotte's favourite bit: Exploring the bizarre creatures that live at the deepest depths of the ocean.
