The team behind the #1 bestselling Atlas Obscura presents a kid's illustrated guide to 100 of the world's most mesmerizing and mysterious wonders, both natural and manmade, in 47 countries and on every continent on earth. Travel the world through common points of interest, from sacred skeletons (Trunyan Tree cemetery in Indonesia leads you to India's Skeleton Lake, for example) to wild waterfalls (while in Zambia visit the Devil's Swimming Pool--and then move on to Antarctica's Blood Falls) to ice caves to bioluminescence.
“Curiosity is both a must and a given. The tone is consistently upbeat but not melodramatic, giving the oddments a sense of reality rather than fantasy—that you could go and witness these phenomena yourself. One delectable sampler of wonders, there for the asking.”—Kirkus
★ “This unique atlas impresses the interconnectedness of the world upon readers, stoking their sense of respect, wonder, and opportunity.”—Booklist,Starred Review
