From the publication page: "Ana de Lima illustrated these marvelous oddities just as she had imagined them in her mind. Mia Cassany wrote about these places just as she had pictured them in her dreams. One day, both of them sat down together for some coffee and carrot cake. They talked about maps and came up with colors and languages for an atlas that would never exist like this. Or would it?"

I love the idea of this book. It would make a great jumping-off point for kids to design their own places, or a group project where each contributes to a map like the map on the endpapers. Something about the visuals fell a little flat for me, though it may have just been my own preference for less-pastel colors, or as another reviewer said, the need for higher-quality paper in an oversize book like this.
