Dear World, How Are You?



The charming true story of an inquisitive little boy who decided to write to someone in every country in the world

Two years ago, seven-year-old Toby decided he'd like to write to someone in every country, to find out more about the world we live in. With his mum's encouragement, he set about hand-writing letters to research scientists in Antarctica, game-keepers in Chad and to a very famous South African president . . . Nearly everyone he wrote to responded, sometimes sending photos, recipes or drawings, telling Toby a little about where they lived - how they lived, what food they ate, what school was like, and, importantly for Toby (as someone very interested in dinosaurs), whether there were fossils in their country. This book is the result, bringing together the huge variety of replies that Toby received. Charming, touching and fascinating, this is a book that shows that the world is only as big as your imagination and that it is full of potential friends, waiting to be discovered, no matter where you live . . .
