A celebration of diverse world cultures from the brilliant Peter Spier, one of the most beloved children's illustrators of the last fifty years. In this breathtaking tour around the world, young readers can pore over the many details that make each country and culture unique and special—illuminated by Spier's detailed and witty illustrations of festivals and holidays, foods, religions, homes, pets, and clothing. In print since 1980, this classic, boundary-pushing book is a must-have in today's global age—a tribute to the ways in which we as the world's citizens are at once both different and the same.

★ “The Caldecott Medalist has created his most ambitious and impressive picture book so far, with minutely detailed and exquisite paintings of human beings on all four continents.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A wonderful introduction to a global view that will answer and arouse curiosity in the young and act as an absorbing reminder for any age.”—School Library Journal
