Set off from London and travel across the globe. Then try to make it back! In Lonely Planet Kids' Around the World in 50 Ways , kids choose their favourite routes and transportation, from tuk-tuks and sleds, to steamboats and hot-air balloons. They'll visit famous cities and exotic, far-flung places - and learn amazing facts about each destination along the way. But they'll need to be careful: not every path will take them where they want to go! Welcome to the Tower of London! That's the starting point of this amazing adventure. But what's the next leg of the journey? That depends on the transportation chosen. Once aboard, kids can discover all about these amazing machines and how they work. Then upon arriving at their next destination, they'll get to explore the local area and see what makes it so interesting and unique. With over 20 possible routes, who knows where they'll end up? About Lonely Planet Kids: Come explore! Let's start an adventure. Lonely Planet Kids excites and educates children about the amazing world around them.

I read it to Noah aged 7 aged 7
Around the World in 50 Ways 9781786577559
5 stars
This is a really fun book with a great concept. The idea is to start off in London and then make your own way around the world choosing different modes of transport as you go. You get to make up your own journey as you go along. We had great fun taking planes, cycling, driving and even taking a boat and a bus amongst other modes of transport. We learnt a lot travelling around with our tour guide Zak and loved all the facts and figures. We did hit a few dead ends on our trip and have yet to get back to London but will definitely keep trying. My son loved this book and said:

'I thought this was a really good book. I liked learning about all the different places in there and I wish I could go and visit them.'

Georgie, Leo and I have spent hours going on adventures and finding the different places on a map as we are reading about them. Finally yesterday we made it back to London without hitting a dead end! 
They love he fact that you don’t read from front to back in the traditional manner but can jump about the book.
We love it because we have been to quite a few places so can talk about our memories. 
What a fun book!

I loved the concept behind this book, combining both different modes of transport and a myriad of different countries and cities around the world. Each page is brightly illustrated and informative, which the children in my class are loving, and the book is rarely on the shelf at the moment, such is the thirst to find new ways to make it from London around the world and back again. This truly is a book that will entertain and inform for a long time to come. Excellent!

What an interesting book. I liked that I chose my own way through the book instead of reading it front to back. The bright, colourful pictures representing each city are fantastic. These take up the main part of each page with a few fun facts added. It is already a book that I keep picking up to read again and again.

I read it to Suzanne aged 8 aged 8
Around the World in 50 Ways 9781786577559
5 stars
A truly entertaining book - my daughter was itching to get back to reading it every second it was out of her hands. She loved illustrations and the fact that she was the main character who decided about the way she travelled! It was absolutely brilliant idea! She was really encouraged with the fact that she didn't have to read page by page. She thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and vicariously touring the world through the eyes of Zac! She learnt basic information about lots of cities all around the world.

She would love to see this book dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive!

I think it's a wonderful book! It's defenitely an inspiring read! For anyone who has ever wanted to see the world or go on an adventure, this book will give you that chance

This is a great book: beautiful to look at, an engaging concept and really informative too. A choose-your-own travel adventure, you can whizz around the world, learning fascinating facts about places around the globe. My 8 year has been reading it to the whole family, keeping both his parents and younger sibling interested and we've all learnt new things about cities we thought we knew well. It's continuing to ignite my son's interest in the world and the element of choice gives him the control young children love as well as keeping the book interesting. We dip into it from time to time when we feel like dreaming about travelling internationally.

PWe have loved reading this book, it feels like an adventure every time. The kids love the fact the can make choices whilst reading it and it is written so they can read alone or with me. You travel through the book and learn things about different places on the way.
The illustration through the book is brilliant and we would definitely recommend it.

 Around the World in Fifty Ways By Dan Smith

I loved this book. One of the reasons I like this book so much is the illustrations! They are  really bright and colourful. I also like the facts you found on each page. 
The book was not like anything I had read before. You start on page 1 but then go to different pages depending on what choices you made. It means every time you pick up the book, you go on a different adventure. I enjoyed reading the book in this way and thought it was really clever.

Around the World in 50 Ways 9781786577559
4 stars
I enjoy this type of book because you get to make the decisions of your character and the book does not guide in your choices. You choose your way of travelling the world in 50 different ways and turn to different pages depending on what you choose. It means you have a different outcome each time you read it. 
You get to read about different countries and their different types of transport, and you get to see famous landmarks. I could not put this book down. I recommend anyone to try it.
