ALA Booklist
From the eye-catching jacket photos to the clearly written explanations of natural phenomena, volumes in the Inside series have much to offer. Each book explores its topic in an engaging way, and the many excellent illustrations work well with adjacent text and captions. While the 10 fold-outward or fold-upward pages aren't always necessary, the books' varied page layouts are attractive and the quality of the photos, computer-generated images, original illustrations, and charts is consistently excellent. The three new earth-sciences volumes offer historical perspective on their respective subjects as well as bringing to life, through photos and well-chosen quotes, the dramatic experiences of firsthand observers. Inside Earthquakes looks at the geology of the earth's shifting crust as well as the effects of quakes on people and cities, landforms and coastlines. Each volume concludes with strong back matter. Excellent books for browsing or science reports.
Horn Book
Clear prose and striking visuals combine to explain the title natural occurrences and their effects. The books are cautionary without being hysterical, conveying immediacy through a conversational style and occasional personal recollections. Foldout pages (some horizontal, some vertical) are generally used to excellent effect. Photos, drawings, charts, and other visuals are well chosen and well documented. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind.
