Item description for Alex & Penny Ballooning over Italy by Giada Francia...
In Alex & Penny Ballooning over Italy, readers meet twins Alex and Penny, aspiring young secret agents who undertake an adventurous mission that finds them soaring over Italy in a souped-up hot air balloon outfitted with gadgets that would make James Bond envious. While completing their top-secret mission, they discover the history, arts, food, and culture of Italy. Throughout the book, spectacular aerial photography spotlights the sights as seen from above by Alex & Penny. Along the way, the twins learn about the art of Michelangelo, Botticelli, Giotto, and other eminent artists, and sample regional food. Throughout the book, mazes, word games, and other brain-teasers reinforce the historical and cultural facts presented in the story (the solutions to the games appear at the back of the book). Packaged with a bonus fold-out poster sized game, this unique and accessible introduction to the history, landscape, and culture of Italy makes learning fun. Giada Francia has an arts degree in archaeology and is affiliated with the Egyptian Museum of Turin. She is an enthusiastic traveler and photographer with extensive experience developing educational programs for children.
