Take a tour of 13 fascinating countries in this introduction to cultures around the world, now available in paperback

Join a young boy as he hops around the globe, visiting friends in 13 different countries spanning all 6 populated continents. Along the way, he introduces us to each friend’s environment and customs, and shares interesting facts about each country’s culture, language, food, geography, wildlife, landmarks and more. Each country has a dedicated spread with a small map that shows geography and landmarks, letting readers imagine they are traveling, too. The format makes it easy to spot similarities and differences between countries.

This informational picture book brings engaging nonfiction content to younger readers by showing them how other children just like them live around the world. Playful, realistic illustrations done with stylized realism lend warmth and whimsy to the book, making each locale feel
welcoming. A Ticket Around the World will leave readers feeling like they’ve toured the globe without ever having left home.

Natalia Diaz and Melissa Owens are, respectively, the former acting editor and current assistant editor of Chickadee magazine. This is their first book. Natalia lives in Markham, Ontario, while Melissa lives in Toronto, Ontario.
