Big Bang to Climate Change

Dutch (?) Writer and Illustrator (living in Belgium)
Peter Goes
Timeline – A Visual History of Our World
Gecko Press 2015 $39.99hb
ISBN 978 1 7765 7069 0
Themes: World History
A big book in every way! In size/ in concept/ in impact.  On pages so detailed you could spend an hour or more just looking at one page, with true brilliance the author/ illustrator takes us zooming and swooping through world history from the Big Bang to climate change. The text although it requires good eyesight as it is quite small and some in italics, is written with a light touch which makes it all the more memorable but it is from the images that much of the learning will happen – they are truly original.
(I do hand on many books to schools and colleges but this one is for ME!)
