Trafalgar Square
An enchanting child’s–eye view of the wonders of the world, from the author of The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

Independent Publishing Group
Miranda wins a balloon ride—but the rope snaps and away she goes, over seas, mountains, and deserts. She touches down at the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids, flies over the Great Wall of China, visits Japan, almost falls into a river full of crocodiles in Australia, makes some new friends at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, is buffeted by storms over the Channel, and much more. Miranda is a brave and resourceful character whose adventures are shown in delightful pictures of the places she visits. With map backgrounds and place names, this is a big story with lots of action, told with warmth and humor.
