Kindergarten-Grade 2—In Ljungkvist's third "Follow the Line" story, readers are again led on a journey, and, this time, the twists and turns take them around the globe. Children first meet the line on the cover where it sets the stage to travel from Kenya to Greenland, the Sahara Desert, the Amazon Rainforest, and other places before going into outer space. On each spread, readers are given a wide range of facts about the location. This book will delight children as they follow the line and gather information about Sri Lanka where "Sea turtles can live to be over 80 years old" to the Russian taiga with its "Evergreens shaped like cones, so snow can easily slide off their branches." While this picture book lacks a traditional storytelling format, it will likely delight children who are in awe of its graphic venture around the world.—Susannah Richards, Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic, CT
