The Most Special Place On Earth


Happy River Press, April 2011/ ISBN:  978-0615435374


Miles and miles from here, whole continents away, there’s a special place and in The Most Special Place on Earth, author and illustrator Sean Michael Thomas helps young readers learn and dream about what the world has to offer. With bold, vividly crafted illustrations, Thomas offers readers another big world adventure in his follow-up to Sedikit-Sedikit Menjadi Bukit: Little by Little We Climb the Mountain, his 2008 debut.


Meet Tutti. She’s wild about learning and she loves to ask questions. She’s what adults call the inquisitive type. She wants to know all there is to know about, well, everything. On one particular evening, right before bedtime, she asks her father what he thinks is the very most special place on earth. His answer is the Taj Mahal, but on the second night Tutti poses the familiar refrain, and he thinks it might be Machu Picchu. From one iconic destination to the next—from Russia and Antarctica to the continent of Africa—Tutti and her father keep on trying to figure it out.


Oh, the places your child will dream of exploring with The Most Special Place on Earth as their bedtime story…
