A Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Winner

Join Anno, recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, on a spectacular tour of Europe!

Lush paintings, exquisitely detailed . . . An exceptional book."--Publishers Weekly

"Executed in meticulous and gently hued watercolors, this imaginative rendering will fill hours of wonderment, always with the delightful anticipation of seeking still one more amazing detail."--Booklist
