"Young adventurers will love this lavishly illustrated trip around the world." * Mumsnet *
"What this book sets out to do, and what it does very successfully, is to inspire your readers with a sense of the diversity of our planet and its wonders, both man-made and natural. It also provides a true sense of what travel is for as we see those young adventurers meeting local people and joining in with them in a wide range of different activities." * Books for Keeps *
"Oh, oh, oh, oh, OHHHHH this is a geographical treat, a global spectacle, a truly earth-shattering view of planet earth." * Read It Daddy *
"Reading maps doesn't have to be boring. In fact it could be an invitation to an adventure and if you choose the `Atlas of Adventures' by Lucy Letherland, then you are sure to have some wonderful time travelling with your finger on the map through some of the most exciting places." * Mojo Mums *
"Atlas of Adventures, our new favourite book' - `What I love about the book is that is doesn't just show you a picture of a city or place, but it allows the reader to experience what it would be like to be there... It's also filled with fun and engaging illustrations and interesting facts about every destination... Atlas of Adventures is the first book out from a new imprint called Wide Eyed Editions which we are really excited about." * Babyccino *
"An inspiring book that will encourage the reader to find out more about the countries and encourage them to travel to see them for themselves. The generous size makes it great to share - excellent in the classroom. This is the debut title from Wide Eyed Editions, a new imprint of Quarto Books - I can't wait to see what comes next!" * Parents in Touch *
"A beautiful book... The illustrations are fun, the colours are vibrant, some of the facts are random (but true)...Fascinating, fun - and an ideal Christmas present." * Scotsman *
"Atlas of Adventures is a huge - and rather yellow - book, and it's one I would have read endlessly as a child... In short, it simply seems like a fun book, and you ought to be able to spend ages looking at the pictures and reading the snippets of facts, over and over again." * Bookwitch *
"The strength of the book is in the collaboration between he author and illustrator; the research of the many quirky elements of our planet will appeal to the budding explorers and anthropologists, geographers and biologists... This is a superb resource for any classroom attended by 4 year olds and older children." * Montessori International *
"Lucy Letherland's Atlas of Adventures has much to recommend it." * The Daily Telegraph *
"Lucy Letherland's handsome Atlas of Adventures is an illustrated list of activities around the world, each inspiring, detailed scene annotated with facts." -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
"A big, horizon-expanding non-fiction book for children curious about their world ... a collection of colourful spreads illustrating some of the world's most varied places... - each page is bright and interesting, and generously scattered with bits of fascinating information." -- Daniel Hahn * Independent on Sunday *
"We're childishly excited about the Atlas of Adventures. Beautifully illustrated, Lucy Letherland's book features a map of each continent and suggested experiences therein, from exploring the pyramids of Egypt to visiting penguins in Antarctica. As well as playful imagery, pages are smattered with fun facts to inspire infant adventures." * Lonely Planet Magazine *
"Our favourite page was the one on London as we are visiting in half term and will try to look out for some of the things we saw on the map." * The Guardian *
