Horrible Geography: Horrible Geography of the World

From perilous poles to desperate deserts, set off on a whistle-stop tour of our world! Vicious volcanoes. Wild weather. Pesky predators. Ugly bugs. It’s where globetrotting gets gruesome! This round-the-world guide takes you on a rollicking ride across our planet’s countries and continents, packed with freaky facts, deadly dangers – and scary sight-seeing stops that only truly intrepid explorers dare brave! Find out what happens when a volcano turns nasty, whether you’d survive at the blood-chilling poles, and how a frog can stop you from dying of thirst in the desert. From the awesome Amazon rainforest, (it’s twice as big as the whole of India) to the darkest depths of the oceans, full of frightful luminous fish, it’s the trip of a lifetime – if you can survive it!
