Overview

When you're walking along the city streets there's always so much to see and hear. But do you ever stop and look down? Have you ever wondered what's going on deep in the ground under your feet? What about in the countryside? What goes on underground there?Starting in the city, take a journey down though the layers of the Earth, all the way to the planet's core and out the other side. There are so many amazing sights to see along the way! With narrative non-fiction spanning natural history, archaeology, and geology, and detailed pictures to explore, this delightfully illustrated concertina book will encourage children to think about the planet they live on.

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 The earth science is simple but made glorious by the illustrations, homely and fantastic at once, as in a picture of a subway car, headlights streaming, above a layer of sedimentary rock and, further below, caves with spiky stalactites and stalagmites. The pictures are packed with detail, but each one says adventure--look, diamonds!--as much as education. - The Horn Book -A foldout, concertina format creates a visceral sense of a journey to the center of the Earth....
