Synopsis

Extreme Earth by

Ripley's Twists bring a fun, engaging and uniquely Ripley's approach to a whole range of topics, from the human body to space. Each title blends stunning full-colour photographs and illustrations with clear explanations and extraordinary facts that are guaranteed to inform and to entertain. In Extreme Earth , you will find: key information - everything from shocking earthquakes to caves bigger than office blocks; intriguing bite-size facts - the Himalayas were formed about 45 million years ago; real-life stories - like the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, which killed over 36,000 people and destroyed 165 villages in 1883, the eruption could be heard from over 4,500 miles away in Sri Lanka; 'Big word alert' glossaries - clear and straightforward explanations of difficult words such as 'precipitation'; and, stunning photographs and detailed diagrams.

About the Author

Robert LeRoy Ripley was an American cartoonist, who created and developed the world-famous Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon strip in the years after the First World War. He travelled the globe in search of unusual objects and stories, and built up an extraordinary collection of everything from shrunken heads to dinosaur eggs and iron maidens. These are now exhibited in Ripley museums around the world, including one in London's Piccadilly Circus. The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has become an international best-seller.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
