Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have a loyal group of nonfiction readers (ages 8-10) who come into the library each week in search of The Guinness World Records. If all of the Guinness books are checked out, then they will check out The Scholastic Book of Records or The Dangerous Book for Boys. Now there's a new general knowledge book that will have reluctant readers asking for more....The Worst Case Scenario Survive-O-Pedia would make a popular addition to the 031s (general knowledge). Beware, you'll need to start a waiting list once the kids see it!" The Nonfiction Detectives blog
School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—This guide shows students how to survive a variety of situations, from encountering a lion to being stranded on a desert island. Young readers are likely to experience some of the scenarios, such as scary spiders or airplane turbulence, while others (like getting amnesia, meeting a komodo dragon, or finding oneself stranded on an iceberg) are quite rare. Fans of the series may notice that only some of the articles include the familiar numbered steps to escape disaster; the other entries instead contain more general information on the topic. The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook Junior Edition (Chronicle, 2007) covers more everyday crises, such as riding the school bus and a trip to the principal's office; there is very little overlap with this book. In addition to the illustrations found in earlier titles, this volume has numerous stock photos that will increase its appeal to browsers. Unfortunately, much-needed visual aids are not always included; for example, a section that explains the differences between alligators and crocodiles has no accompanying art. Nevertheless, kids will pick this volume up and enjoy it.—Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

    Survival

    If you are swimming and you notice a shark, go fast but dont make any splashing noises. You can eat cactus. Peel off the spikes and bite into it to get water. No cactus can kill you or make you hyper. Try to find large sharp rocks to use as weapons. You can use them to stab animals. DO NOT eat any type of wild fruit, unless they are bananas. The other fruits could be poisonous. Yea sure, its a blueberry....(you got poisoned) using broken glass or amirror is a good signaler to passing boats. Simply hold it up to the sun to make a beam of light you can shine at a boat. Hope this helped you like it helped me! ~survivorbyheart
