Overview

This double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey deep underground. One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, whilst the other side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the countryside. The scenes in the book, by the widely acclaimed illustrator Yuval Zommer, are continuous, so contrasting underground sections, from tunnels and pipes to burrowing creatures, layers of rock to the planet's molten core, run seamlessly into the next. Mixing urban and rural settings, as well as Geology, Archaeology and Natural History, The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world in a detailed learning experience. And its fold-out, 'Laperello' style, which extends to 2.5 metres in length, is great fun to spread out on the floor and really get involved!

Reviews

A foldout, concertina format creates a visceral sense of a journey to the center of the Earth.... Zommer's illustrations are a hive of subterranean activity, and Guillain's captionlike bursts enthuse about everything readers are seeing. --Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly The painted, stenciled, and collaged illustrations are full-bleed, and the tones graduate pleasantly from light colors at the surface of the Earth to rich pinks, yellows, and oranges as readers near the Earth's core. The text is informative...including such nuggets as earthworms are expert recyclers, eating dead plants in the soil. An unusual offering for the young geology nerd. --Kirkus Reviews - Kirkus Reviews
