Opa! It's Athens, Greece! Join KeeKee, the world traveling kitty, as she explores one of the oldest cities in the world. The adventure begins the moment KeeKee lands her balloon at the Parthenon. From seeing the Greek gods to enjoying moussaká at a taverna in Plaka, to running the ancient Olympic Stadium, you'll discover what makes Athens a must-visit destination. Flip to the back of the book to find the kid-friendly pronunciation guide and glossary along with a charmingly illustrated map of KeeKee's top things to see in Athens, Greece. Part bedtime story, part travel guide, KeeKee's adventure will spark curiosity and inspire an appreciation for our great big wonderful world! Athens was a finalist in the 17th annual Foreword Reviews' INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards and was awarded the Gold Mom's Choice.
