The Best Ways for the World to End

Children & Young Adult, Picture-Books, Non-fiction Children's Books

How do we want our world to be?

The world as we know it will end; this development is already in process. And what will come after that? In concise texts and spectacular picture panels, this book presents several very different scenarios for our future. Will we only be able to survive in spaceships? Will there be a great drought or even a flood? Could the end turn into something beautiful, such as a time without wars and borders? What would life be like without cars or with freely roaming animals? In twelve bold visions, Andrea Paluch describes the possible endings and continuations of our current world, while keeping the concrete everyday life of families at the center of her descriptions. The accompanying luminous, large format pictures that Annabelle von Sperber has created are impressive and enchanting, and will trigger a flood of further fantasies.

• Beautiful, eerie and inspiring – a picture book full of material for discussions and dreams
• Magically beautiful, irresistible pictures for children and adults alike
