Format: Paperback
One of my son's friends bought this book at a Scholastic book fair. I've never seen a large group of boys (all around ages 8-9) so captivated by a book that they sat for an hour paging through it on the playground. My son begged to borrow it and read it non-stop for an entire rainy Saturday. My younger son, who is 6, took it to bed that night and read quite a bit of it too. They grudgingly returned to book today so I'm online to buy a copy for our home.
It offers information on deadly "things" one might encounter in a very adventurous life. In doing so, it provides a lot of of facts about animals, weather phenomenon, geography, etc. It also provide a scale of how likely one is to encounter these things and the rate of survival if encountered. Overall a really good read for grade school boys with inquiring minds.

My son loves this book so much that when his first copy was destroyed by his younger sibling in a terrible sippie-cup related incident, he begged for another copy. We complied, and were happy to make the investment. He carries the book with him in his backpack, or in the car, or wherever, and he is constantly spouting out details he has learned about the "100 Most Dangerous Things". The science in the book is accurate, yet written on a level appropriate for most children to understand. Whatever inspires kids to read is okay by me, so if your little one is intrigued by tsunamis, snakes, and electrical storms, then pick up a copy ASAP!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for two of my nephews who don't like to read and they have been going back to it off and on since Christmas. Each page has a different disaster, with the likelihood of occurence, survival, and other interesting facts. I flipped through it before I wrapped it up, and found myself reading the whole thing because it is so cool. The pages are very busy, with icons, photos, and text boxes. The boys (8 & 10) love it, so I recommend it for reluctant readers who love disaster.

My daughter got this last Spring and still loves studying this book. She presented it to her class for her weekly book report and then so many kids asked the librarian for it that she had to order it for them. The layout, pictures and topic are great for drawing kids in to read.

I bought this book for my oldest great grandson who enjoys the series. He has read all of them now except the latest release which I plan to get him next Christmas. From his comments, I understand that these books are quite entertaining as well as educational. I am glad to find something in his age group that covers both enjoyment and learning. I will continue to buy these as long as the series continues.

My son (8-9 years old) loves the book, and he is not a voracious reader. He regularly requests reading several pages of it at bedtime. It is very informative and interesting for an adult reading it with a child too. I highly recommend it!
