The world's horizon is an apparent limit to the vastness of our planet, but for a little girl with boundless imagination and a comprehensive point of view, it's more than just a frontier; it's an invitation to an infinite exploration. Told poetically through her eyes, Beyond the Horizon is a beautiful tale that invites us to grasp the invisible--both what's outside and within ourselves. The book explores different fields of vision, using each colorful viewpoint as a story of its own, venturing throughout the globe, from above and below, reminding us that how we see challenges and opportunities is just a matter of perspective.

This delightful tour through sixteen of the world’s most vibrant streets will awaken young readers to the joys of travel. What makes a street interesting? Is it the architecture, the landscape, the people, the businesses, or the history? In this collection of sixteen charmingly detailed illustrations, kids can discover the answer for themselves. Spanning nearly every continent to explore a fantastic variety of cities, sixteen doublepage spreads come alive with color and activity. In San Francisco, people and vehicles make their way up and down Lombard Street’s twists and turns. On Hotagayo Street in the quiet, wintry Japanese town of Shirakawa-gō, snow slides off the deeply pitched roofs, while in Bamako, Mali, the massive and crowded marketplace shimmers with heat. Kids will delight in the quirky architecture of Prinsengracht Street in Amsterdam and try to identify all the neon lights of Broadway. Whether looking down the dizzying slope that is the Rua da Bica in Lisbon or zooming on a motorbike through Hanoi, Agusti Sousa’s irresistible illustrations capture each location’s unique vibe. Mia Cassany’s texts will spark discussion about what makes a place special, while encouraging readers to wonder what’s happening on the streets of their own hometowns.
