Early Reader: Miranda The Explorer by James Mayhew

Many of his books have a cultural agenda and James is passionate about introducing children to art, music, opera, ballet and traditional tales. Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performed in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and live art. Miranda is on a desert island - all by herself! In theory, it should be an appealing way to introduce kids to various famous landmarks and Wonders of the World from the Pyramids of Giza, to Big Ben, to the Taj Mahal, to the Hollywood sign but the illustration style didn't grab our attention and the text was lacking in appeal. She graduated from Cambridge with a degree in Economics and Sociology. Accompanied by ensembles ranging from soloists and chamber groups to full symphony orchestras, the carefully choreographed concerts are highly educational, critically acclaimed and enormous fun. Miranda wins a prize in a painting contest which is a ride in a hot-air balloon. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together.

I liked how the greetings from all the people in all the countries were written in English and that country's language. Beverley is author of more than 40 books from picture books and novels to science biographies. I cheered for Miranda making the best of her situation, and learning how to navigate her balloon. After winning a competition, Miranda is gifted with a hot air balloon. I found it quite stereotypical throughout as she visited the main attractions in each country, and the people and children she met all looked very stereotypical and were depicted doing stereotypical things, for example an Egyptian boy riding a camel, a French lady with poodles.
