Product Description

By Jonathan Litton

Illustrated by L'Atelier Cartographik

With over 150 languages, flaps revealing pronunciation guides, and factfiles explaining how to write hi in hieroglyphs, how to sign 'hao' in Native American 'hand talk' and how to rub noses in a Maori 'hongi', a world of exploration is at your fingertips!

As well as learning hello in over 150 languages, peek inside the Amazon Rainforest and the Australian Outback, see how the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Incans communicated, learn two sign languages, and meet a Cameroonian king.

Don't be shy; have a try! Some greetings may look like squiggles rather than words, but lift the flaps to explore pronunciation guides and extra facts about the phrases. Furthermore, with features on places from Alaska to Zululand, explore a diverse range of cultures.

L'Atelier Cartographik have gone to the ends of the earth for reference material, consulting experts in the Papuan highlands, the Masai steppe and the Siberian tundra. Their curiosity, characterisation, accuracy and panache has led to a beautifully crafted book.

Age Range: 7 to 11 years

Hardcover, 16 pages, 180 flaps and over 150 languages

Cover printed on vintage textured craft paper

Dimensions: 10.5 x 12.5 x 0.5 inches
