Lonely Planet Kids and Joe Fullman

illustrated by Andy Mansfield

It's time to peek inside the world's most famous museums.
Welcome to Lonely Planet Kids' Incredible Cabinet of Wonders - the greatest little museum in the world! 12 collectors, from toy makers and monster hunters, to sailors and archaeologists, have created their own themed cabinets and filled them with their favorite things.
Kids can lift the flaps and open the cabinet doors to discover 100 extraordinary objects from our planet's weird and wonderful past and present, then read fascinating stories behind each one and find out where to see them in real life.
What objects will they find? And what stories will they tell?
The 12 themed collections are:
- Toy Maker's Cabinet- Sailor's Cabinet- Monster Hunter's Cabinet- Naturalist's Cabinet- Miniaturist's Cabinet- Doctor's Cabinet- Treasure Hunter's Cabinet- Archaeologist's Cabinet- Costume Maker's Cabinet- Musician's Cabinet- Scientist's Cabinet- Make Believer's Cabinet

Each cabinet is illustrated by a different artist and features photos of every astonishing and unusual artifact.
