The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, the elaborate carved temples at Angkor Wat—this is a visually stunning look at 13 ancient cities around the globe, inviting readers 6 to 10 to imagine what it was like to live in these wondrous places. Giles Laroche's remarkable illustrations are crafted from layers of painted and cut paper, and he sums up the trip with a global map and timeline.
"This title will surely inspire young archaeologists to learn more about history and the ancient world. Laroche's art is the real star."—School Library Journal (starred review)
