When families travel on holiday, adults have access to numerous resources to plan their sightseeing. But there is nothing much for children–other than some uninspiring variants of adult guidebooks or tedious activity manuals. And that is why they get bored when they visit most tourist attractions.
Cities of Adventure are a solution–consider them as travel guides for children but with a twist! Rather than boring them with facts and data, each book is written as an action-packed adventure story incorporating the city's spirit, main attractions and experiences. By making information entertaining, the books spark curiosity about the destination.
12-year old Tara and 10-year old Neil Lander travel the world with their parents and Sumo, their friendly Labrador. Follow along with this unforgettable family as they embark on one crazy adventure after another. A treasure hunt in London that takes them across its significant museums, palaces, and parks. A struggle to capture a runaway kangaroo before it destroys all of Sydney's tourist attractions. Or a race against time across Los Angeles's studios, museums, and markets, to prove the innocence of a leading Hollywood actress. With these books in hand, kids will know all of a city's landmarks before they even see them!
The ongoing pandemic has unfortunately curbed travel in many places. But while our children are stuck at home, their imagination–thankfully–has no such constraints. And we hope that these books may help them journey to wondrous faraway lands, even if it is only in their minds for now . . .
We hope you enjoy exploring all our Cities of Adventure!
