Simply put a journey into the unreal. I maintain my view that picture books are for all ages and I am using this book right now as a writing prompt for my 12 yo. Older and younger folks will enjoy it for is whimsical nature and gorgeous artwork. If you have a preschooler, I highly recommend picking up books such as this one for re-reading. If you are at the stage where you read several books over and over, they might as well be entertaining and beautiful.
In your journey through this atlas, you will encounter a jungle where animals exchange stripes and spots, upside-down mountains, volcanoes that spew bubble gum, a gentle humpback whale keeping an entire city afloat. Perfect to inspire sweet dreams or imaginative games- I'm keeping my copy indefinitely.
Please note that I received a free advance ARC of this book from Media Masters without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
Verdict - Buy
