Visit 31 of the most fascinating monuments, buildings, and ruins around the world in this entertaining atlas for readers 7 to 10. Not only will you see places like the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, the Parthenon in Athens, and Alhambra in Spain—all presented in beautiful digital drawings—but each destination includes a guided tour by a famous person connected to its history. Antoni Gaudí tells us about his extraordinary Sagrada Familia church, Hiram Bingham talks about finding the lost city of Machu Picchu, and Jane Percy, Duchess of Northumberland, shows us around Alnwick Castle, where scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed.
