Atlas of Record Breaking Adventures

Emily Hawkins, illustrated by Lucy Leatherland

(Wide Eyed) – hardback

This excellent blend of record breaking phenomena and world atlas would be well at home in any child’s library.  The illustrations by Lucy Leatherland and witty text by Emily Hawkins work so well together.

Readers journey around the globe to experience wonders, both natural and human-built.  Find out about the largest known underground dwelling of prairies dogs (400 million!), the biggest and deepest caves and the lake where there are lightning storms all year round.  How about discovering the world’s fattest parrot, or the island only inhabited by deadly snakes?  There are many more amazing sights and experiences to behold.

Curious readers might also wish to check out the Amazing World Atlas, or dive into a whirlpool of facts in the Lists for Curious Kids.  Both are available in Bookwagon’s on line store.
