ALA Booklist
The Unexplained series is an ideal collection for reluctant readers struggling to make it through more sophisticated (and duller) texts. Yes, the sentences are simple and engaging, and the large, ominous, digitally created illustrations provide plenty of eye candy. But even better is the swift covering of ground that gives each book true scope very few pages, readers will get a sense of intellectual accomplishment and may well seek out other, more in-depth series. Crop Circles covers what are almost certainly hoaxes, focusing on several admitted pranksters. Each book questions the validity of the various claims; it's telling that the brief back matter of three of these four titles includes a glossary definition of skeptics. Light, fun, and sure to intrigue.

The first shapes found in crop fields were circles. Since then, people have discovered more complex designs. Where do these designs come from? Are they messages from alien visitors, or are they nothing more than pranks created by humans? This title will explore the history of crop circles and look into whether or not some could be of alien origin.
