Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

Review

Like its predecessors, this offers at once a challenging exercise for budding artists and a satisfying journey for armchair travelers. -- Kirkus

Follow the line have been a favorite at our house. The several places and animals you see are fun and new. The kids love learning about different continents. Enjoy!

My son adores the Follow the Line series of books. This one is probably my least favorite but I still enjoy it because my son loves the animals, illustrations and I like the facts about the different parts of the world. It is a good educational book and the reader (parent) can decide which parts to read to their preschooler.

Format: Hardcover
What a pity that an artist as talented as Laura Ljungkvist would encourage children to travel -- by bus, helicopter, or ship, no less! In an age of impending climate disaster, the idea of personal travel must be looked at as cultural and environmental tyranny. It is criminal to suggest to children that they ought to consume precious environmental resources on pleasure travel. If we could *only* reduce our fossil fuel use for non-essential purposes (such as air travel and cruise ships!), then maybe, MAYBE, we could extend the life of our precious planet for a few more miserable months of huddling against the weather and subsistence farming.

Worse still, the author acknowledges on the book flap that she, personally, has traveled to all the destinations in the book, creating a massive carbon footprint that can never, NEVER be offset. Maybe she thinks that European (white) elites should have special privileges that darker-hued regular Americans are denied.

I'm quite sure this book was even printed on tree-murdering paper. The horror!

People like Laura Ljungkvist are part of the problem.
