Review:

The Unexplained series is an ideal collection for reluctant readers struggling to make it through more sophisticated (and duller) texts. Yes, the sentences are simple and engaging, and the large, ominous, digitally created illustrations provide plenty of eye candy. But even better is the swift covering of ground that gives each book true scope in very few pages, readers will get a sense of intellectual accomplishment and may well seek out other, more in-depth series. Alien Abductions begins, as all the titles do, with a story, before moving through the possible motives (study, attack) of those mysterious, nefarious Grays. Atlantis starts, naturally, with Plato, and makes great use of maps when offering up possible locations of ruins (and enticing us with the legend of a giant Poseidon statue that sunk to the bottom of the sea). Crop Circles covers what are almost certainly hoaxes, focusing on several admitted pranksters. Nostradamus explains the seer's quatrains and the visions of his that might or might not have come true. Each book questions the validity of the various claims; it's telling that the brief back matter of three of these four titles includes a glossary definition of skeptics. Light, fun, and sure to intrigue. --Booklist
