No matter the hour, something exciting is happening on the mountains, shores, and cities found in Around the World Right Now, from Gina Cascone and Bryony Williams Sheppard. Explore cultures, countries and climates while meandering across the globe, passing through each of the twenty-four time zones. Olivia Beckman’s lively illustrations chase the setting sun as a girl from Ipanema goes walking and a moose wanders the sleepy streets of Anchorage, with playfully depicted clocks hidden in each scene.
