Based on true adventures by attorney Claire Wilby, Globetrotter: Meridien Travels the World is based on her own travels with her horse. This is a delightful children’s book that takes place across two continents and several countries. Meridien is a jumper and goes to various events in Europe and the Middle East. Along the way, children are exposed to the language and culture of the different countries. The text is punctuated with beautiful illustrations by Antony Wootten. He draws in a style that children and adults will be drawn to. The reader cannot help but fall in love with Meridien and his friend Charlie. Together, they form a winning team and at the same time win the hearts of the young and young at heart.
Claire Wilby has authored Globetrotter: Meridien Travels the World to share her love of horses and world travel. Claire’s goal is to transfer those two loves to her readers. I believe she has accomplished her goal and that children who read this book or have it read to them will fall in love with the horse and the adventures. Parents need to take advantage of this book and discuss the information provided by Meridien’s travels. They can help their children learn about different cultures and languages. They can teach their children that people are more alike than different. This book can influence peace in the world. Claire writes clearly and simply. She is from England, so some of the words and spellings may seem strange to Americans, but I think even young readers will have no trouble understanding them.
