The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is a thrilling expedition to 100 of the most surprising, mysterious, and weird-but-true places on earth, including the Diavik Diamon Mine in the Northwest Territories, which pumps out 3,500 pounds of glittering gems a year, and the unique Edouard Arsenault Bottle Houses in Prince Edward Island, made from over 25,000 recycled glass bottles.

A New York Times Bestseller!

"Hey kids: Geography can be fun! At least when it involves an illustrated guide to 100 magical destinations, including the Waitomo Glowworm Caves of New Zealand and South Africa’s Boulders Penguin Colony. Just don’t blame us if next year the little ones ask for a round-trip ticket to Ethiopia’s Lava Lakes." —The Washington Post

“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 Reviews
