Spin the Globe: The Incredible Adventures of Frederick von Wigglebottom is a fact-based and educational book series based on bedtime stories I told my daughter and son. Each night they would ask Daddy to tell them a story. After exhausting every variation of animal, astronaut, and princess story I could come up with, one evening, I took notice of the globe that sat atop their dresser. I asked them to help me with a story topic and had them “spin the globe”! They would use their finger to stop the globe, and wherever their finger landed, I had to tell them an impromptu story about that particular country or area. This particular story of the series takes place on tonight’s globe stop, Nepal, the Roof of the World where the Earth meets the sky. Frederick introduces you to Maila, a Gurung boy, and Ang, a Sherpa girl, as he experiences Namche Bazaar and the Himalayas. Frederick learns about the unique history, people, sites, and animals of this mountainous area of Asia, the Sherpa people and infamous Gurkhas.
