Review: Incredible Journeys

Here's an incredible book to ignite the imaginations of young adventurers and explorers.

Real-life explorer Levison Wood takes readers on some of history's most famous expeditions, tracing the routes of ancient explorers, such as Marco Polo and David Livingstone.

There are 20 different expeditions to study, each complete with bold and colourful illustrated maps and fascinating snippets of information to peruse.

Journey along the Silk Road, set sail with the Vikings, or take to the skies with Amelia Earhart. This sumptuous book covers everything from early explorers seeking to circumnavigate the world, to some of the women who explored the sands of Arabia, and on to astronauts striving to set foot on the moon, and scientists diving down into the Mariana Trench.

There's also a fabulous spread on how to be an explorer, encouraging readers to be observant and curious, learn how to read a map and discover other tales of adventure.

This beautiful tome is a must for anyone with a curious mind and adventurous spirit. Who knows what they'll discover!
