Atlas of Imaginary Places

$20.00 NZD

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? Ana de Lima’s whimsical, softly colored illustrations are filled with surprising details that reward close examination, while Mia Cassany’s soothing narrator is a nameless fellow traveler.
