Volcanoes display the awesome power of the Earth unleashed. Of the tens of thousands of volcanoes around the world, more than one thousand volcanoes are active, and at least twenty of those will be erupting at this very moment. Some can rumble away uneventfully for hundreds of years, whilst others erupt with no warning, turning day into night with huge clouds of ash and changing the weather around the world.

Look Inside Volcano takes an exciting new look at eruptions and explosions. It explains what volcanoes are, how they form, what leads them to erupt, and what happens during an eruption. The book also introduces the different types of volcano, famous volcanoes from around the world, and volcanoes on other planets. Along the way it serves up plenty of fascinating facts-find out what links volcanoes with diamonds; meet the Maelo bird, which relies upon volcanoes for its survival; and discover how you can survive a volcanic eruption.

Packed with photos, bold graphics, and a lively and engaging text, Look Inside Volcano presents the subject in an enjoyable and accessible format. The acetate pages allow readers to journey into the center of the Earth, stripping back the layers to reveal the inner workings of a volcano, with dramatic before and after images of real-life explosions and exciting quick quiz questions. This is an imaginative and wonderfully low-tech approach to interactive learning, with safe and simple activities throughout the book that help to really bring the subject to life.
