Grade 3–6—This tongue-in-cheek take on an atlas, arranged by continent, crams information into spreads and fold-out pages packed with detailed maps, other illustrations, and text. The inconsistent layout is a literacy teacher's nightmare, but a child's dream. The entries are different—some read left to right, and others start at the top right corner and traverse down four pages in a zigzag. Many students will find the ordered chaos delightful, and they will notice something new with each visit. The combination of facts with highly detailed, humorous, and sometimes irreverent art makes this browsing item just right.—Colleen D. Bocka, Nathaniel Rochester Community School, Rochester, NY
