    Calling all curious kids! It’s time to pack your bags and embark on the journey of a lifetime. Created by the same team behind Atlas Obscura, the #1 New York Times bestseller that has over 600,000 copies in print in its first year, The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is a thrillingly imaginative expedition to 100 of the world’s most mysterious and mesmerising places.

    The hottest place on earth, and the coldest. Lava lakes and the otherworldly Blood Falls of Antarctica. An underwater spaceship graveyard and a museum of dancing mummies. As compelling as the destinations is the way the book unfolds. Imagine the world’s most ingenious tour guide working with an unlimited budget, and this is the journey you’d take: hopscotching from country to country in a daisy chain of connecting attractions. For example, visit the site of a mysterious meteor crash in Siberia, then turn the page and learn about one in the Yucatán. While in Mexico, visit the fantastical crystal caves, and then turn the page to find yourself in another massive cave, this time in Vietnam.

    Illustrated in gorgeous and appropriately evocative full-spread watercolours, this book is a passport to a world of hidden possibilities.
