About the book

Synopsis

A fascinating and interactive guide to the Earth's treasures, with superb illustrations and pop-up wizardry. Children (and adults) are always amazed to discover just how many of the things we use have been taken from the ground beneath our feet, from the building materials of our homes, to the fuels that we burn for energy as well as the chalk, talc and salt that we use every day -- and all this before we even go into the minerals from the soil that appear in our vegetables and keep us healthy. Last but not least are the fabulous gems and precious metals that make beautiful jewellery.

Discover how minerals were formed, lift the flaps to find out what all sorts of everyday things are made of and open a treasure chest to reveal a spectacular pop-up of glittering gems!

About the Author

Kate Petty lived in Cornwall with her husband, Mike, before tragically dying from cancer in May 2007. She was both an extraordinary writer and an extraordinary person. The author of a number of novelty and pop-up books, including the innovative The Great Grammar Book and The Wonderful World Book, Kate was also involved in creating amazing books for the Eden Project children's book list.

Jennie Maizels studied illustration at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design, and graduated in 1993. The Great Grammar Book by Kate Petty was Jennie's first children's book and has sold a quarter of a million copies. She is the illustrator of six other books in this pop-up series, including The Global Garden, The Super Science Book, The Wonderful World Book, The Magnificent Music Book, The Terrific Times Tables Book, The Perfect Pop-Up Punctuation Book, all by Kate Petty. She is also the author of Finger Food for Babies and Toddlers (Vermillion, 2003). Jennie lives in Hampshire with her husband and two children.
