The world really does come to visit George when his grandpa arrives, with a globe, to look after him and his sister for the day.

Grandpa explains how everything from the cereal they eat for breakfast and the chocolate bars they love, to the rubber in their bicycle tyres and wood in their toys, come from plants all over the world.

The lively, simple text follows George's day as he discovers the wonder of plants and how they affect his daily life.

With eye-catching, quirky illustrations coupled with photographs of the original grasses, fruits and plants on the right hand side, this highly original and entertaining book follows the ethos of the Eden Project by increasing awareness in children of the natural world around them.

I wish the world could really come to visit me ...And it does.

Join George as he drinks orange juice from Spain, eats rice from China and sets sail for Africa in search of chocolate!

Children everywhere will be amazed to discover how plants from all over the world affect their daily lives.

Inspired by the Eden Project in Cornwall.
