Quick note from Hip2Save Sidekick, Cass: Our 11 year old has the hardcover version of this book and she loves it! It offers scientific answers to quirky yet thought-provoking questions like “What if you could drain all the water from the oceans?” and “What if all the lightning in the world struck the same place?” It’s definitely a fun read, especially if you have kiddos who love science, like mine.


Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton, ATLAS OBSCURA revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden and the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvelous the world really is. And with its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, it is a book to enter anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer.

    I “read” What If? on Audible. It is fabulous. He actually does explain the physics (for regular people) behind some crazy situations! And funny!

      This sounds perfect for my curious, science minded 11 year old! I never would have found it on my own and I think he will really enjoy it. Thanks H2S!

        Mindy, he will love it! My 12 yr old son got it a few years ago and he has read it cover to cover several times.
