Geography Quest: Journey into the Earth by John Townsend


Geography Quest: Journey into the Earth by John Townsend

Step inside for an earth shattering expedition! An urgent phone call comes in, it's Doctor Ludmila Popplecracker, the famous volcanologist! Drill down to the centre of the Earth to determine whether the supervolcano is about to erupt. It's a dangerous mission but you're being depended on to collect vital information! Readers must use their problem-solving skills and geographical knowledge to navigate their way through the thrilling adventure, learning more about geography with every page turned. Geography Quest follows the popular Maths Quest, Rubik Quest, Science Quest and History Quest series. Questions are carefully chosen to address important geographical subjects for the age group. Finding the answers enables readers to advance through the story, learning more about geography with every step taken. Clues are dotted along the way, and wrong turns will direct readers towards the right answer! A glossary explains geographical words and provides added reference material. The four titles in the Geography Quest series are: Journey into the Earth - 978-1-78493-009-7 Rapid River Rescue - 978-1-78493-010-3 Mountain Peak Peril - 978-1-78493-029-5 Deep Sea Danger - 978-1-78493-030-1


'This is a fascinating approach to geography, packed with information on every page. Children must really learn to apply the facts, which means they have to think about the consequences every step of the way. It's quite a challenge and each possible answer sets the reader off in a different direction, making the book just as enjoyable on a second or third visit.'

'The books are likely to appeal to children who enjoy puzzles, adventure-based stories, challenge and computer games.'
