Volcanoes and Earthquakes
By Susie Brooks
Geography without the boring bits! An in-depth look at earthquakes and volcanoes.
Packed to the gills with far-out facts and fascinating information, the Where on Earth? series makes standard geography topics lively, fun, pacey and interesting.
The Where on Earth? Book of Volcanoes and Earthquakes answers questions such as why does the earth have plates? How can you measure an earthquake? And what are volcanic hotspots? Along with many others. It looks at plate boundaries, seismic waves, tsunamis, volcanic ash, magma chambers, and much, much more. Crammed full of explosive happenings and, literally, earth-crunching events, geography has never been so exciting!
If you've enjoyed learning all about earthquakes and volcanoes, why not try reading up on coastlines, rivers and rainforests, in other books in the series?
