The Lonely Planet Not For Parents Series


by Lonely Planet (Author)

Book Cover for the Lonely Planet Not For Parents Series
Lonely Planet are all about inspiring and empowering people to get out there and explore the world, no matter who you are or where you’re from. But recently they realised that they had been unintentionally leaving a very important group of travellers out of the picture: kids.

No longer. That’s why they have released a brand new Not For Parents series – for budding travel lovers 8 and up.

Not For Parents opens up the world to a whole new generation of adventurers – with intriguing stories and fascinating facts about people, places, history and culture from around the world. From hideous histories to funky food, they cover all the cool stuff to know and are jam-packed with photos, illustrations and cartoons.

A warning to parents: these might not be the same ‘really interesting’ (read: boring) bits that you like…where to buy coffee, how many stars the hotel has, and other things likely to put your kid right to sleep. Instead these books cover actually cool stuff everyone should know like where you can see Platform 9 ¾ in real life, why New York taxis are painted yellow, and—that burning question that every youngster is dying to ask—did the ancient Romans wear underpants? You'll just have to wait and see...
