This Is the World: A Global Treasury - Miroslav Sasek

Travel books have a reputation for being humorless, information-laden bores. For more than half a century, however, Miroslav Sasek’s classic travelogues have provided an antidote with broad appeal. This is the World (Universe, $35) is a selection of the best moments from his This Is… series of books. In Sasek’s hands, the travel book is aimed neither at children nor at adults, but has broad appeal. Witty descriptions of the culture and sites of different cities and countries pair with illustrations ranging from impressionistic cartoons to ultra-realistic renditions. With this book in hand, you can make a trip around the world from your couch. Ages 8 and up. SB
