The Big Book of Mysteries

Nosy Crow. Jul. 2023. 96p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9798887770048.
Gr 3-6–Kids are introduced to 100 well-known, though often debated, mysteries, delusions, and phenomena. While the book cannot prove the validity of each, it does an excellent job providing as much information available, allowing readers to decide for themselves. Adams presents young people with information on sightings, encounters, and tales that range in subject from the Bermuda Triangle to Bigfoot. This browsable compendium has something of interest for every reader. Painterly illustrations offer visual representations of the content that will prove helpful to young readers taking on some of these heavier topics.
VERDICT Recommended for general purchase for a youth nonfiction or reference collection. This is also an excellent title for reluctant readers who could carve out one or two “mysteries” in one sitting.
