Alex Frith has been a children's author for more than a decade, covering every topic on Earth, from prehistoric animals to robots with artificial intelligence, and everything under the Sun, from the origins of the Universe to the adventures of Thor, God of Thunder. At home he reads too many comics, and attempts to raise three children with an awful lot of help from his wife, and no help at all from his cat.

CBBC's Blue Peter website
An original, innovative and interactive atlas full of flaps to lift, revealing beautiful buildings, exotic animals and fabulous sights. Divided into the separate continents, each double page is crammed with information on sights and cultures to be seen all over the world as well as country borders and capital cities. Includes a giant world map poster.
We bought this book for a gift. It looks fantastic and I really like the tidbits of information on each page. Great illustrations and we always love lift-the-flap books like this one. However, I turned to "Europe" to view the map and find my birth country - Malta. The bottom of Europe is missing! And if you turn to Africa, Malta has been omitted from the Mediterranean Sea...hopefully it is included in the Whole World map at the back of the book..
