This award-winning, double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey down through the layers of the Earth, all the way to the planet's core and out the other side. *Picked by the Guardian as one of '15 Modern Classics' books* When you're out walking around, whether on the city streets or a country trail, there's always so much to see and hear.
But do you ever stop and look down? Have you ever wondered what's going on deep in the ground under your feet?
There are so many amazing sights to see! One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, whilst the reverse side shows the ground beneath the countryside.
The underground scenes include tunnels and pipes, creatures' burrows, layers of rock and the planet's molten core, each running seamlessly into the next. Mixing urban and rural settings, covering subjects such as geology, archaeology and natural history, The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world through a detailed learning experience. And its foldout, laperello (or concertina) style, which extends to 2.5 metres in length, is ideal for spreading out on the floor to pore over for hours. Explore even more of the world with The Skies Above My Eyes (August 2018) and The World Around Me (October 2020), companion books from the Look Closer series.
