Embark on the journey of a lifetime—and see how faraway places have more in common than you might expect! Hopscotch from country to country in a chain of connecting attractions: Explore Mexico’s glittering cave of crystals, then visit the world’s largest cave in Vietnam. Peer over a 355-foot waterfall in Zambia, then learn how Antarctica’s Blood Falls got their mysterious color. Or see mysterious mummies in Japan and France, then majestic ice caves in both Argentina and Austria. As you climb mountains, zip-line over forests, and dive into oceans, this book is your passport to a world of hidden wonders, illuminated by gorgeous art.

I loved the adult version of this book, which took readers to some of the quirkiest, most bizarre locations in the world, so I was thrilled to see a version for younger readers. Like it’s big sister, this book is filled with descriptions of odd and creepy places, with colorful illustrations that will grab a young reader’s attention. This is going on my must purchase book for my library’s 2018 -2019 budget
