Journey along the Great Wall and up the Nile with Lonely Planet Kids this June
Lonely Planet Kids unveils two adventures of a lifetime this month, with the arrival of the latest entries in its Unfolding Journeys series of pull-out frieze books: Following the Great Wall and Secrets of the Nile.
Each title charts a journey in a sensational fold-out wall frieze nearly two-metres long, which can be removed and displayed. With stunningly illustrated detail on one side, and fascinatingly evocative text from award-winning Stewart Ross on the other, these books are designed to delight explorers aged seven and over.
