This book taught me much more than what my geography teacher would have. I am looking forward to reading other installment of Horrible Geography series.

Funny and interesting book about what dangers are lurking in the deserts and what those deserts really are. Interesting for children and adults alike.

I think it deserves 3 stars out of the 5, mostly just because, while educational, it tries really hard to be funny to avoid anything negative and it kind of just makes you feel a little guilty for laughing.

Desperate Deserts is clearly aimed at a younger generation than me, at age 25, but it's still a pretty cute book. It's a book about deserts. Obviously there are going to be stories about people dying because they weren't prepared to go on expeditions into the various deserts across the globe.

Deserts have more disasters than other places. High winds might blow up a sandstorm, but in a city (make sure it's not in a desert), it can only blow off some roofs (and blow the things in the house around. Ha ha. This will probably not happen.). Deserts always encounter droughts and then a heavy downpour. In a city, this will not happen.

No, český překlad tomu dal opravdu na frak. Mimo jiné se dozvídáme, že Sahara je rovníková poušť. Zřejmě se jedná o chybu překladatele, ale i tak...nevím, nevím.
Na velbloudu v tropickém dešťném pralese, to by byl teprve zážitek ;-)
worst of horrible geography series . Very boring , not reccommended.

This book gets one-hundred-fifty-five stars, one for each page. This is a really funny book without wordplay, which is weird because all funny books have wordplay.

A fun and entertaining read. A very enjoyable way to learn about this topic.
