The World In A Second

What if you could see what is happening all over the world right now, in this one second? What are they doing on the other side of the world from you? What are the animals doing in places that have never seen human beings? Author Martins imagines scenes from all over the world, including New York, Mexico, Angola, Greece, Hungary, and South Africa—an elevator gets stuck, a driver honks impatiently, a volcano erupts, an old woman goes to sleep, boys watch as a soccer ball careens towards a glass window … A lot can happen in the world in one second! “The book's extra-large trim is the perfect format for this mesmerizing vision of a thrillingly expansive world” (KIRK).
