Atlas of Imaginary Places, Paperback / softback Book

Atlas of Imaginary Places Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Ana de Lima

Paperback / softback


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.
