Inspired by one of Joyce Wan's best-selling greeting card lines, Kiwi and Pear are a pair of monkeys who do everything together, and now they're off on a trip around the world. They travel to every continent, visiting penguins in Antarctica and llamas in Peru, snapping photos of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the pyramids at Giza, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and touring the Taj Mahal in India.

The rhyming text and sweet illustrations are presented on fold-out pages and included with the book are stickers and a poster-size world map so that children can place a sticker on each place Kiwi and Pear visit.

Follow Kiwi and Pear on another journey in the interactive storybook app Kiwi and Pear World Adventure. Afterward, join Kiwi and Pear as they explore the skies in Kiwi and Pear's Balloon Adventure game app. Both apps are available for the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad.
