Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Curiosity's the name of the game whenever the folks from Atlas Obscura are involved, and here they whisk readers around the globe, making stops in fascinating, and often unbelievable, locations. This explorer's atlas touches down in 47 different countries, linking them thematically by their sites and wonders. But before kids antsy with wanderlust are released upon the world, a traveler's checklist offers suggestions for the trips the book contains, from the obvious (sunscreen, camera) to the highly specific (Geiger counter, goat treats). The large-format design makes for roomy double-page spreads that highlight two destinations per country (or state, on occasion) located on a globe and four fast facts. Concise, compelling text is printed over full-bleed artistic renderings of the sites. So how does one get from Iceland to Zambia to Antarctica? Well, the blue whale migration near Húsavík, Iceland, is linked to an astonishing fruit bat migration in Zambia's Kasanka National Park. Zambia is also home to Victoria Falls, which, in turn, leads explorers to Antarctica's iron-rich Blood Falls. These connections appear as footnotes that always hold a hook to keep the pages turning. Alternate Travel Routes are appended, allowing readers to customize their itineraries by themes, such as Fire and Ice and Subterranean Sojourns. This unique atlas impresses the interconnectedness of the world upon readers, stoking their sense of respect, wonder, and opportunity.--Julia Smith Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This guide to world wonders offers a tour of 100 curious and awe-inspiring destinations within 47 countries and three states in the U.S. Among the natural attractions highlighted are giant crystal formations in the caves of Naica, Mexico; a river in Colombia that turns the colors of the rainbow; and blue whales migrating in the waters off the coast of Iceland. Human-made works of architecture and technology include "Towering Tree Houses" built by minister Horace Burgess in the woods of Tennessee and the stone temples of Mnajdra, Malta. Among the more quirky curiosities is the Coromoto Ice Cream Shop in Venezuela, which scoops a record number of flavors, including spaghetti and sardine. For each locale, the authors include an obscure fact: "In Cambodia, the human head is considered sacred-never pat somebody on the head!" Whether readers are able to visit any of the featured locations, Thuras (a cofounder of Atlas Obscura) and Mosco advocate for exploring the here and now: "You are already somewhere amazing."
