Now in paperback, the New York Times–bestselling Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid, the book praised by the New York Times Book Review: “A thrillingly imaginative expedition to 100 weird-but-true places on earth.” The Washington Post: “Hey kids: Geography can be fun! At least when it involves an illustrated guide to 100 magical destinations. . . . Just don’t blame us if next year the little ones ask for a round-trip ticket to Ethiopia’s Lava Lakes.” And Kirkus Reviews: “One delectable sampler of wonders, there for the asking.”
For all curious kids, here is an invitation to embark on the adventure of a lifetime—a thrilling expedition to 100 of the most surprising, mysterious, and weird-but-true places on earth.
