THE SEVEN NATURAL WONDERS OF THE WORLD
Volume 20 Number 4
This original and fascinating small pop-up book describes seven natural wonders of the world. They are the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the caves of France and Spain in Europe, the harbour of Rio de Janeiro in South America, the Paricutin Volcano in Mexico, the Grand Canyon in North America, Victoria Falls in Africa and Mount Everest in Asia. These wonders range in date from as far back as 18,000,000 years ago when the coral of the Great Barrier Reef began to create colonies to our own century, in 1943, when the Paricutin Volcano began to take shape.
Each "wonder" is succinctly described in an easy-to-read style, with enough information to whet one's appetite. The pop-ups are excellent. They are beautifully executed in collage, with a depth of colour and perspective that are truly eye catching.
A map on the inside of the front cover shows the location of the continents.
