This Is The World
With deft strokes of his paintbrush and a witty voice to match, master illustrator and storyteller M. Sasek captured the essence of the world’s major capitals and brought them to life for an entire generation of young readers. Collected here for the first time in one volume are some of Sasek’s most beloved adventures.

An inspirational travelogue that introduces readers to the art, architecture, music, food, and traditions of multiple cities and countries, This is the World is the perfect book for international commuters and would-be travelers of all ages.

As parents who absolutely love to travel and experience new cultures, this was an amazing book to read with our kids. The kid-friendly verse and amazing illustrations of real-life places made our kids want to visit the actual cities. My young kids can’t wait to hold a koala Down Under and climb the Eiffel tower in Paris. This book is great to help inspire a life-long love of travel or just to teach them about this big world that we live in. They asked again to read the “Big Book” at bedtime last night!
