This book gives information about islands all over the world. There are river islands like Manhattan, and mysterious islands with ancient ruins, and disappearing islands that are eroding away. I especially liked the pages about artificial islands that have been created by man. There are factoids about animal life and history and different cultures around the globe.
The illustrations are eye-catching, and I loved the art style. The colors are bright, and each scene is beautifully designed.
The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the way they presented scientific theories as if they were fact, and they wrote about widely-accepted but unproven ideas as if they were fact.
This made me question everything they write about in here. If they aren’t careful to differentiate between actual proven facts and theories or beliefs, then how can I trust anything in the entire book? It’s very unprofessional and unscientific to write about theories in this way. It’s misleading.
