The first reason you should buy An Atlas of Imaginary Places is because this is one of those rare, timeless works of art. Let’s face it, more than likely you’re at least 18 and probably don’t go running looking for children’s books to add to your Tom Clancy collection. However, there are always exceptions. Just like there are always low-key funny PG Lego-type movies in theaters or even the girly romances your girl drags you out to but you secretly enjoy, the same is true with books. Aimed for the younger crowds, this is absolutely the type of book anyone could have in their public collection. It represents timelessness and holds true to any generation. It’s rare to find a work of art able to go amongst the likes of books like Dr. Seuss. This book is just that!
