  • “Pure paradise for adventurers and daydreamers! /…/ This is a wonderful book with lots of interesting facts, a book that you can immerse yourself in for a long, long time. Richly illustrated with colorful, easy-to-understand pictures.”

    Aftonbladet, Sweden

  • “Geography that will have you wanting more. /…/ In Dino Deluxe, Sarah Sheppard showed that it’s possible to make a book about the giant prehistoric animals without being either boring or too shallow – the latter being something that the commercial dino genre is particularly prone to. Also here [in Important Maps for Daydreamers and Adventurers] the Swedish author’s illustrations and cleverly articulated informal language alleviate the encyclopedia feel, giving [the book] just the right amount of humor.”

    Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden

  • “Fabulously packed with facts, beautifully illustrated and utterly inspiring map book for children (and their parents).”
