Ida and the World Beyond Mount Kaiserzipf

Translated by David Henry Wilson

About The Book

Ida has a mind of her own.

Although she lives at a time when girls are expected to be mothers and housewives, Ida dreams of being an explorer and going on expeditions. She bravely sets off on her first trip around the world, an adventurous journey over land and sea, discovering faraway lands and meeting friendly people along the way.

With expressive colors, dynamic shapes, and a simple but evocative text, Linda Schwalbe’s debut picture book is a joyful tribute to Ida Pfeiffer—one of the first female explorers to travel around the world.
