Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars NEED RAY MEARS OR BEAR GRYLLIS TO SEE YOU THROUGH? NOT WITH THIS BOOK!, 9 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Not For Parents How to be a World Explorer (Lonely Planet) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lonely planet guides for children?

This is a true World Explorer with a nice big `Not for parents' stamp on the cover.

It is a quality 150 page embossed hardback cover book full of hand drawn pictures of how to survive being stranded in the wild. It's Ray Mears for children but in no way is it dumbed down.

It has history lessons on the great explorers, how others live in extreme conditions, and how to live and survive disasters out in the wilds. Are you worried about climbing Everest? Shooting rapids? Crossing a glacier? Fighting a bear, Escaping from Quicksand?

Well if you need to survive it is all here.

The cartoonish illustrations take away any scary gore and make it child friendly and fun. It will appeal to nearly all ages, even parents and if you find yourself in a bathtub of piranha you'll be able to survive. I do draw the line at an emergency appendectomy though!

A Lonely Planet Guide for children and it is excellent. It really is a quality publication and that's refreshing.
