Wonders of the World

The seven edifices of ancient times were first described as wonders of the world by the Phoenician poet Antipater od Sidon, who jotted down the creations of man that astonished him on his travels in the 2nd century BC. Later other authors of antiquity and the Middle ages also drew up their own lists of wonderful sights. Today, a new list of the world's seven most fantastic creations has been compiled, which fascinate modern travellers in the same way that their ancient counterparts captivated visitors long ago.

This volume expands the knowledge of the readers going on this exciting imaginary journey through many interesting facts and authoritative information supported by scientific research. The artistic 3D illustrations make this gripping book even more attractive, bringing the wonders of human ingenuity, will and perseverance within palpable reach, while stimulating the imagination of both adults and children who are interested in these captivating structures.

The World Through the Eyes of Children

"Hi, I'm Pete. I live in Alaska and I'm an Eskimo. I bet you think I live in an igloo, but I don't. Our house is built of wood and stone. But grandpa has shown me lots of times how to cut blocks of frozen snow and steck them on top of each other in a circle. We use these shelters made out of ice when we go fishing."
