Horrible Geography is a book series for children that explores different aspects of geography in a unique and entertaining way. The series was created by Anita Ganeri, a British author who has written many other children's books as well. Since its inception, the series has gained immense popularity among children and adults alike, owing to its witty humour and clever approach to teaching geography.

The Horrible Geography series consists of more than twenty books, each focusing on a different aspect of geography. Ten books are in this set, the perfect starter for any budding geographer. From volcanoes and earthquakes to deserts and rainforests, the series covers a wide range of topics that are both informative and fun. The books are illustrated with colourful drawings and photographs that bring the different locations and phenomena to life.

One of the main reasons why Horrible Geography is so popular is its approach to teaching. The books are written in a style that is easy to understand and engaging, with plenty of jokes and puns to keep children entertained. The series also makes use of different types of text, such as quizzes, fact boxes, and lists, to break up the information and make it more digestible.

Titles in This Set:

  1. Earth-Shattering Earthquakes
  2. Cracking Coasts
  3. Freaky Peaks
  4. Monster Lakes
  5. Bloomin' Rainforests
  6. Stormy Weather
  7. Violent Volcanoes
  8. Desperate Deserts
  9. Odious Oceans
  10. Raging Rivers

Another aspect that makes the Horrible Geography series stand out is its focus on geography's "horrible" aspects. While the books are informative and educational, they also highlight the more gruesome and gory elements of the natural world. For example, readers can learn about the parasitic worms that live in the intestines of some fish or the deadly diseases that can be caught in contaminated water. This approach not only makes the books more interesting but also helps to capture children's imaginations and keep them engaged.

The Horrible Geography series has also been praised for making geography accessible to children who might not otherwise be interested in the subject. By presenting the information in fun and engaging way, the books help break down any barriers or prejudices children might have towards geography. This can help to foster a love of learning and a curiosity about the world around them.

Furthermore, the Horrible Geography series also encourages children to think critically about the world they live in. By exploring different geographical phenomena, the books help children to understand the complex systems and relationships that exist within the natural world. This can help to develop their problem-solving skills and encourage them to think more deeply about the world around them.

Overall, the Horrible Geography series is an excellent resource for children who are interested in geography or who want to learn more about the natural world. With its engaging style, colourful illustrations, and unique approach to teaching, the series has captured the imaginations of children all over the world. Whether you're a teacher looking for a new way to engage your students or a parent looking for an educational and entertaining book series for your child, Horrible Geography is definitely worth a look. Make sure you check out the Terry Deary classics that this series is based on, Horrible Histories
