Anno's Journey

Written and illustrated by Mitsumasa Anno

  • 1978 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Winner (Picture Book)

Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Winner

Join Anno, recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, on a spectacular tour of Europe!


A pictorial journey through the traditional countryside, farms, and towns of northern Europe takes readers past familiar storybook characters, visual jokes and puzzles, tricks of perspective, and other surprises.


“With paintings, visual puzzles and tricks of perception, Anno introduces geography and science by focusing on children and adults at work and play, as well as on art, architecture, composers, and painters, as he conducts an imaginary tour of England . . . Lush paintings, exquisitely detailed . . . An exceptional book.”—Publishers Weekly

“Executed in meticulous and gently hued watercolors, this imaginative rendering will fill hours of wonderment, always with the delightful anticipation of seeking still one more amazing detail.”—Booklist
