“Sheppard is Sheppard: no-one that can build up and maintain a fascination with facts like she can. The pages are filled with sumptuously arranged and colored fact squares and speech bubbles with ironic and witty comments from animals and humans alike. It looks messy in an inviting way, making one’s gaze jump between illustration and text, sparking a sense of joy when you discover something new. This is, like all of Sarah Sheppard’s books, a title to return to often, to read together or page through on your own.”
“Fun for little ones with mysterious places. /…/ Explanations [to the mysteries] are given where there are any to be had, and attempts at guesses where there aren’t, which is just as good. The mysteries themselves are just as interesting, regardless [of solved or unsolved status]. Life is meant to be exciting, and this book helps us elevate that sense of excitement.”
“Nothing shouts ‘perfect Christmas present’ more than a new book of facts from Sarah Sheppard. They’re simply irresistible. [Mysterious Places and Unsolved Riddles] is smart, funny, colorful, busy, nerdy, cool, and darn thrilling, and this time it’s all about trying to explain the unexplainable.”
“Mysterious Places and Unsolved Riddles by Sarah Sheppard is just as interesting, thrilling, and informative as a book of facts should be, and makes you want to read more about these strange places.”
“Sarah Sheppard has done it again! /…/ In a humorous and pedagogical way, big and small facts are imparted with the help of maps and illustrations. A fun Christmas present for a knowledge-hungry children ages three and up.”
