200 Word Review
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
“Atlas of Adventures: Wonders of the World” is the latest in the best-selling “Atlas of Adventures” series by Ben Handicott with illustrations by Lucy Letherland. The series is a set of colorful atlases marketed for children. Each of the 96 beautifully illustrated pages contains short informative and fascinating statements about the wonder. The book is divided by continent “showcasing the globe’s most impressive landscapes, iconic buildings and evocative antiquities from both the modern and ancient worlds”. Many of the wonders are those you would expect to find but it includes a few surprising ones too.
At the end of the book, there is a cute and enjoyable “find and seek” of many of the pictures presented throughout the book.
This book is larger than a normal hardback book. Its dimensions are 11.2 x 15 inches which would help to be able to read the statements. The series is available as a hardback. Reading it as an e-book was difficult because the book needed to be shrunken to screen size.
It is highly ranked on Amazon for sales in both the “Geography & Cultures > Travel” and “Science, Nature & How It Works > Mystery & Wonders” categories as of 12/11/18.
