Quite hard to describe this book with its quirky range of maps. Just get a copy and you will be hooked.

I wish I had found this book earlier. It describes the basics of German grammar and usage in an extremely clear and non ambiguous way. Perfect for a beginner, and excellent revision for those with more knowledge.

Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Identification help, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A large bird of prey adorns a nearby lamppost most days and I needed to identify it. This beautifully clear map was just the job. (It's a common buzzard which I probably should have known, but we all have to start somewhere!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect penguins, 24 Jan 2013

It is a tradition in our family that I make penguins to adorn the Christmas cake. I used these instead this year and will never make my own again. Tiny and perfect they went down a storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did I love it or hate it?, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely little skit about growing older. It is extremely sad in its hopelessness, but has some true gems in it which are all too recognizable. I laughed out loud on several occasions, and came close to tears on others

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 17 Dec 2012

This is a sturdy tambourine. Bought as a toy but suitable for 'proper' playing. This arrived very promptly and has given a great deal of constructive pleasure.

1.0 out of 5 stars The lady of the camellias, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This publication is of such poor quality that it is almost impossible to read.

It is difficult to find where the introduction starts and the actual book begins (halfway down a page, just as a new paragraph)
It is similarly hard to spot the ending.

Three narrow columns on each page break up the continuity. Chapter headings come mid-line and there are strange phonetic spellings.

There is an abundance of lines such as this:

(sic)'I was5 ri vetted to the spot from the moment she went in r. l the moment when she came out agsio'

or: 'My dear Prudence your proUgt is not polite.' There are many such examples.

Oh, and have I missed the significance of having a cactus instead of a camellia illustrating the cover?

This really should have been returned, and I am sorry I left it rather late to do this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book, 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Around the World (Paperback)
Around The World is bright, colorful informative and entertaining. This can be enjoyed by children of many ages from tinies looking at the pictures to much older ones getting some clear and accurate information about their world.
