The Atlas Obscura Explorers Guide for the Worlds Most Adventurous Kid
Who doesn’t love to dream of a great adventure? There are so many strange and wonderful places in the world, it would be great to have a source for young people to be able to find out about some of the more wondrous places one could go. This youngster’s edition of the very popular adult Atlas Obscura will be welcomed by kids everywhere. Lively writing by authors Dylan Thuras and Rosemary Mosco tells about some of the most amazing places on our planet, such as a deep cave in New Zealand that seems to be filled with stars but is actually populated by glowworms, or the sunken city of Heracleion off the coast of Egypt, or maybe just a weird tree with a bicycle grown into it in Washington state. The illustrations by Joy Ang are done in quiet colors and are quite realistic without losing their illustrative charm. Each spread has two destinations, sometimes in the same country, sometimes in different countries. A world map pinpoints the spot, and coordinates are given. A fun description of the place will fascinate anyone reading and make one want to update one’s passport and get traveling. Don’t miss this one.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
