The official 'launch' will be in London tomorrow - we've already used a catapult and a rocket to 'launch' our books, and at the weekend, we'll be using balloons...


If you're going to be in London at the weekend, get involved... (see this Time Out link)


Don't just take my word for how these books are, check out these other reviews:



Mission:Explore is bold, cool, exciting, innovative, geographic, educational…and just plain fun! Every curious kid, budding geographer, and responsible parent should have a copy!” – National Geographic“

Designed to be read, scribbled on, illustrated, smeared, scratched and sniffed, it may just be the most revolutionary geography-related book ever published” – Geographical Magazine

“This young explorers’ kit is endlessly adventurous – a journey in itself. An utter delight – full of surpises and things to make you look at the world afresh. Can’t wait for my toddlers to be equipped with a copy each, so that they too can set out to be explorers…” Benedict Allen, Explorer

“The more removed we become from nature and wild places the harder it will be to inspire people to tackle the worlds environmental issues. Whats great about this book is that its so positive, enthusiastic and creative that it would make anyone want to turn off the Xbox for a few hours and explore the world around them” WWF

“This new book offers a great introduction to camping for children. With a range of fun and practical advice and ideas, ‘Mission: Explore Camping’ is an exciting addition to any family camping trip.” Vango

“I really love these super books by Mission Explore. They are fun to read, great to look at and are bursting with lots of exciting and challenging activities. They are a brilliant way to get kids and adults outside exploring and having fun! Go and get inspired today !” Sue Atkins, author of “Raising Happy Children for Dummies”

“Mission: Explore on the Road is funny, clever and important. How many books do all that? And its dangerous stuff too – explorers will be changed by the nicely weighted and well thought out missions. They leave young people better prepared to go out into the world and make their own sense of it” Dr Joe Smith, The Open University

“And the best thing: the kids run off exploring and entertaining themselves for hours, leaving you to kick back and relax with a cheeky beer in the peaceful afternoon sun!” FestivalKidz.com
