4.0 out of 5 stars 'Geography has never been such fun before!' 8 Feb 2007
'Does Geography grind you down?
Fed up with miserable maps, rotten rock piles and dire diagrams?
Wave goodbye to boring geography lessons as you brace yourself for the shocking world of 'Earth-shattering Earthquakes'......

Gasp! the earthquake that made a river run backwards.
Run for your life! an earthquake sends the sea surging towards you in a gigantic wave.
Giggle! the hamster shaken out of its cage by an earthquake.

And..... if that is not ground-breaking enough for you.......find out what it takes to become an earthquake expert, learn how to survive if an earthquake strikes and discover how rats and snakes can predict tremors.

It's earth shatteringly exciting!

Geography has never been so horrible!'

127 pages, split over 10 chapters:

A shocking true story
Cracking up
Whose fault is it?
Shattering shock waves
On very shaky ground
Earthquake experts
Shocking warning signs
Surviving the shock
A shaky future?

Written with the typical humour of this series of books, in a variety of fonts, interspersed with numerous black and white illustrations/cartoons.
