Tokyo is ramen soup, Godzilla and Shibuka Crossing (the busiest road crossing in the world); Ulaanbaatar has Genghis Khan’s equestrian statue and Nadaam; Antartica hundreds of penguins. This is a book for flipping through as the artist, Marc Martin whizzes round the world in a random and eclectic fashion. His pages are crammed with tiny, busy images – and there are lots of them, illustrating random interesting facts or characteristics associated with the chosen city (cats in Cairo, dust in Alice Springs). This is not the book to go to find something out; rather it is for the child browser, attracting attention through quirky images that need careful exploration – and hopefully inspiring further reading.
