This brand-new addition to the Basher range of books, which include the bestselling Complete Periodic Table from the Basher Science series, offers a unique and exciting way to explore the world. Basher Geography: Countries of the World features a different take on the traditional atlas approach and will capture the imagination of readers with its quirky and highly memorable characters to visualize the world's countries (and other key territories). You'll never forget the huge and fascinating country of Brazil envisaged as a footballer! Accompanying each country character is a detailed map as well as key facts and some amazing information. Who knew that over 820 different languages are spoken in Papua New Guinea, or that Peru has more pyramids than Egypt?
