“Incomplete”
We bought this book for a gift. It looks fantastic and I really like the tidbits of information on each page. Great illustrations and we always love lift-the-flap books like this one. However, I turned to "Europe" to view the map and find my birth country - Malta. The bottom of Europe is missing! And if you turn to Africa, Malta has been omitted from the Mediterranean Sea...hopefully it is included in the Whole World map at the back of the book..
