About the Author:

Jen Green is a prolific nonfiction author who has written more than 300 titles for children and adults alike. She obtained her doctorate in English literature from Sussex University, and after spending 15 years in publishing, Green became a full-time writer. She writes on a broad array of subjects, including art, animals, and natural history. From 2012 to 2013 she was a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the University of Sussex.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–6—A simple overview of Earth's geographic diversity, including how the planet was created, how mountains and waterfalls are formed, and how coastlines are affected by the moon and gravity. Beginning with tectonic plates and moving forward to cover different types of mountains, glaciers, rivers, coastal features, and deserts, the title rounds itself out with a look at the Grand Canyon. While there is a substantial amount of main text, spreads on visiting Ayer's Rock and surviving Mount Everest as well as other tidbits, like photos of four World Heritage sites, discovery of a woolly mammoth, and creatures indigenous to deserts, help give independent readers a break. But the attempt to cover so much content in such a short volume is problematic, as slight inaccuracies do arise: mountains are no longer designated at the 1,000 foot mark as per the United States Geological Survey decision; the Skywalk is not a part of the Grand Canyon National Park but a part of Grand Canyon West managed by the Hualapai Tribe. Otherwise, Green takes readers to great heights of understanding and awe. This work concludes with 15 memory questions and a glossary defining previously bolded words. VERDICT Visually attractive but an abundance of information in a small space makes this an additional purchase.—Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA
