What's Inside? Fascinating Structures Around the World, is written and illustrated by Giles Laroche, and features a unique look into the mysteries within the walls of famous places around the world. From King Tut's tomb to Independence Hall, from a Shaker dairy barn to the Sydney Opera House, readers get an insider's glimpse into these cool structures from all around the world.
Complete with a cute ending, an informative glossary, and a really cool concept, I was really impressed with the ability of this book to appeal to all different age groups. As an adult, I enjoyed looking inside some of the buildings I've been familiar with but never visited. I can see children loving the neat illustrations and the sentences that lead to intrigue as to what's on the next page. And the facts are short, but plentiful.
I must mention the amazing illustrations again....SO cool! I'm not sure how Laroche has done them, but they are incredibly impressive and wonderful to explore. I would love to see more of his work.
What's Inside? is a great title for library shelves.
