Atlas of Miniature Adventures

Atlas of Miniature Adventures

I am a BIG fan of the Wide Eyed Editions imprint and I erm… the children… have quite the collection of books from them on the bookshelf.

I was thrilled to be sent a copy of the Atlas of Miniature Adventures a few months ago and thought I would share it here on the blog. Like it’s bigger sister, the fabulous Atlas of Adventures this is a superb book which delivers each and every time you open it. The book is pocket-sized and it’s one that I have slipped into the bag for the children to flick through whilst I have been at gymnastics or swimming lessons (and have one of them to entertain).

the atlas of Minature adventures is packed cover to cover with the best small things the world has to offer - perfect for little explorers

There are thirty adventures packed into this book and each double page spread is packed edge to edge with things to spot. The things to spot in this book are quirky, and include the world’s largest miniature railway or well as the smallest seahorse.

Like Lucy Letherland’s other books in the series, the level of detail in the illustrations are superb. As I’ve said before there is genius in their simplicity and the children have had great fun spotting the various things in this book.


Whilst the original Atlas of Adventures will always be a favourite here I think this Miniature atlas is a new favourite for popping in the bag and reading on the go.  I love it’s opening pages… the world really is full of mini marvels and it’s a reminder to delight in the little things.

    This sounds great. I can just imagine my niece looking at the pictures to see what she can spot!
