The Worst-Case Scenario Survive-o-pedia by David Borgenicht

The Survive-o-pedia is a deluxe edition of the Worst-Case Junior series: A full-colour photographic and illustrated hardcover nonfiction guide dealing with all things dire, dangerous animals (bears and mountain lions), wild weather events (hurricanes and tornados), extreme geology (volcanoes and mudslides), space dangers (asteroids), and more. Fans of the paperback Junior series will want to add this big book to their shelves - their lives depend on it.


I have a loyal group of nonfiction readers (ages 8-10) who come into the library each week in search of The Guinness World Records. If all of the Guinness books are checked out, then they will check out The Scholastic Book of Records or The Dangerous Book for Boys. Now there's a new general knowledge book that will have reluctant readers asking for more...The Worst Case Scenario Survive-O-Pedia would make a popular addition. Beware, you'll need to start a waiting list once the kids see it! The Nonfiction Detectives blog
