Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Featuring photos and stories from the world's scariest prisons, discover why prison is to be avoided at all costs! World's Scariest Prisons will explore the most terrifying prisons of all time. From the Roman Coliseum to the Bastille, the Tower of London to Alcatraz, World's Scariest Prisons will captivate young readers! Each prison will receive its own photo-intensive overview as well as a sidebar, a break-out fact box, and a quote. Each prison profile will be followed by a feature spread that explores high-interest topics such as prison slang, prison clothes, and prison food, as well as little known details about kids in prison, famous escapees, and ghost stories. World's Scariest Prisons will be equal parts informative and fun. Perfect for reluctant readers, the text will be simple and engaging.
From School Library Journal: Gr 4–6—This well-designed title gives readers an inside look at some of the world's most horrifying prisons, past and present. A quick overview at the beginning of each chapter titled "Behind the Bars" provides each prison's name (current and former), location, years of operation, number of prisoners, and notable inmates who served time there. Readers will also appreciate information on solitary confinement, food, daily life, education, clothing, and jobs. Well-known prisons include the Tower of London, the Roman Coliseum, Attica, Sing Sing, and Alcatraz. Lesser-known ones, ghost stories, and information on escapees are covered, too. A large typeface and well-sized photos add to the appeal, and the text is simple and straightforward, if not groundbreaking. Reluctant readers in particular will enjoy this brief look at the big house.—Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN
