'Geography has never been so horrible'
on 4 December 2007
Based on the series of the books of the same name, this is a lively publication, written in various fonts with 'Wicked World Facts', 'Earth-shattering Facts', 'Teacher Teasers', cartoons, 'Horrible Health Warnings'.... packed full of vibrant colour to encourage even the most reluctant geographer!
'Geography with the gritty bits left in!'
Inside you'll find out:-
* What happens when a volcano turns nasty
* Whether you'd survive at the frozen poles
* How a frog can help you get a drink in the desert
Hold on tight as you embark on a whistle-stop tour around the globe, taking in everything from the perishing poles to desperate deserts, stormy weather to earth-shattering earthquakes.
Crammed full of far-out facts, it's the ultimate Horrible Geography guide to the planet.'
Learning without realising!
Written with typical Horrible Geography humour, e.g.:-
'Before we set off, here's a word of warning.
You might have heard the saying, 'It's a small world!'.
What a load of rubbish! The world is a very big place indeed and parts of it are horrible.
Horribly cold and icy, or horribly hot and dry.
On this trip, you'll be crossing raging rivers and scaling snow-capped freaky peaks. You might get hopelessly lost in the jungle or swept off your feet by a tornado. Wherever you end up, one thing`s for sure.
This tour is not for the weedy or faint-hearted....
Meet expert tour-guide and globetrotter, Wanda and her clever-clogs Uncle Cliff....and Parky the Penguin.....'
A bright turquoise and yellow cover opens to 94 high quality pages split over various sections, culminating in a fold out 'Wicked World Journey Map', showing the 15 most daring journeys ever made and some details about the explorers who diced with death to go globe-trotting.'
