An atlas of the most extreme meteorological and geological disasters that nature has to offer!
''Dynamic illustrations paired with illuminating text will entice even a reluctant reader to revel in this selection; an excellent addition to any nonfiction library''. - School Library journal, Starred Review
''An eye-opening, and -widening, early introduction to our restless planet''. - Kirkus
''The introduction's warning-'every so often, the planet reminds us who's boss'-rings out again at the conclusion, which explains how climate change could amplify each of these terrible and fascinating natural events''. -- Publisher's Weekly
''Earth Shattering Events! is one of those books that perfectly balances both the needs of the child, and the wants of the adult; it's fun, educational and equally entertaining to people big and small''. - The AOI
We humans take our domination of the planet for granted, but sometimes nature reminds us that this is an illusion. Tectonics rip open the earth, vast waves sweep away coastal towns, magma spews from volcanoes and hurricanes lay waste to entire countries.
This book explores nature at its most destructive. Clear, coherent explanations break down the science behind phenomena including hurricanes, tornadoes, avalanches, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, alongside fascinating facts about the biggest and the worst. Informative, accessible illustrations by Sophie Williams make this so much more than your standard geography book.
