Special Delivery: A Book’s Journey Around the World is a beautifully illustrated guide following the journey of one book across the globe, from a printing press in a factory far, far away, over land and across the sea, to the hands of a young boy. With stylish, contemporary artwork from Klas Fahlén and gentle narrative text by Polly Faber, this gorgeous picture book introduces all the people, processes and vehicles involved in delivering the perfect gift!

From factory workers and train drivers to container ship captains, post office workers and booksellers, children will be fascinated to find out how the very book they are holding in their hands made its way all around the world!

Bonus non-fiction material includes three pages of fantastic fully illustrated special delivery facts to inspire and delight curious readers.
