The Street Beneath My Feet Summary

The Street Beneath My Feet by Charlotte Guillian

Picked by the Guardian as one of '15 Modern Classics' books

This award-winning, double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey deep underground. One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, whilst the reverse side shows the ground beneath the countryside. The underground scenes include tunnels and pipes, creatures' burrows, layers of rock, and the planet's molten core, each running seamlessly into the next.

Mixing urban and rural settings, covering subjects such as geology, archaeology, and natural history, The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world through a detailed learning experience. And its foldout, laperello (or concertina) style, which extends to 2.5 meters in length, is ideal for spreading out on the floor to pore over for hours.

Explore even more of the world with The Skies Above My Eyes (August 2018) and The World Around Me (October 2020), companion books from the Look Closer series.
