    This book was super interesting. Although it is a relatively short book it was still very good. This book would probably be a good book for anybody. Whilst reading this book i actually learnt a lot more than i already knew about the things in this book. Awesome book!

    I thought that the book was awesome, had posture, style, and goop. Not such a great ending because it was not big shocker.

    There wasn't any plot in this book as it is just an interesting book filled with facts so it wasn't in story format. I think that this book was interesting like what I had said before because it shows many things that are dangerous which can go from hail-pyroclastic flow. The book shows how dangerous each of the forms of dangers are with ratings that uses percentages and how frequent it will happen to you with a skull and crossbones which ranges from one skull and crossbones-5 skulls and crossbones. The book shows how things that doesn't seem dangerous actually are. For example, a frog fall. They are just frogs in the sky so that doesn't seem like if it's any danger at all but actually when they land on you from such speed (falling from the sky is fast if you didn't know) can seriously injure you. Several main reasons why I had picked up this book was because when I had saw the title, it had looked unique and the pictures were interesting as well and when I had picked the book up, I had read the summary and it had said that it can guide you to know what to do in dangerous situations that are in the book so I thought it may save my life in the future so I had decided to read it. One main reason why I had finished the book was because the book had great pictures inside as well and another reason is because when the book tells me we should I do, I really thought that this book will definitely protect me one way or another if I ever come across one of the situations that was in the book.

    This planet we call Earth has many dangers, everything from wild animals to natural disasters to common everyday things that used wrong can be dangerous. In this book, the author picks 100 things that are especially dangerous to humans. Claybourne starts with natural disasters which seems fitting considering how often such disasters occur, just this last week there were earthquakes, wildfires, and tornadoes wreaking havoc around the world. I appreciate the focus the author has on avoiding the dangers as much as possible. In a lot of cases there are ways to lessen the danger. For example, for a volcanic eruption she recommends following directions when or if evacuation orders are given. After natural disasters, the author covers weather, being lost in the wild, dangerous animals, and dangers we bring on ourselves such as car accidents or parachute failure. Each entry is short but presents the essentials including a brief description of the danger, and quick overview of ways to deal withe the danger. She also gives each danger a risk rating based on how common the danger is, along with a survival rating indicating how likely it is for the victim to survive.This book is perfect for browsing or for reading straight through. The entries are short enough to entice reluctant readers while the topics appeal to avid readers as well. The layout is attractive and easy to navigate. Claybourne has written two other books that are similar, 100 Most Disgusting Things on the Planet and 100 Most Awesome Things on the Planet.

    i love this book, it's awesome. it shows you all the different disastrous things that happen and how to protect yourself from them. It has lots of different case studies, and pictures to show you that they aren't made up. its a non-fiction book.I decided to read this book because i was just looking through my bookshelf at home when i came across this, and thought "why not."This fits into my category 'A book with themes relatedd to those we studied in term 3.' this is because it's a disaster book, and so was the titanic. it even has a Trapped On A Sinking Ship section.An interesting character from this book was Captain Henrik Carlsen. this is because he stayed with his skinking ship for 7 days, even though it was obviously beyond rescue. If i was him, i would have abandoned ship way before then.My favourite quote from this book was "ABANDONING SHIP: Don't panic and start fighting for a place on a lifeboat! There will be space for everyone. if you are able-bodied and strong, help children, the disabled, and the elderly to put their life jackets on and get into a lifeboat. Get in carefully yourself and hang on tight!" because that was basically whatdidn'thappen in the actual Titanic disaster.Something new i leant from this book was that the end of the world could be from one supervolcano eruption, which willcause a nucear winter, basically.

    I read this because I was planning to booktalk 100 Most Feared Creatures by the same author, but I wasn't sure if a copy was going to be returned in time. This book is a little different in that it covers all kinds of dangers (natural and human-caused), not just dangerous animals. Besides telling a little about each danger, the book gives each one a "risk rating" - shown by number of skull and crossbones and denoting how likely you are to be threatened by it - and a "survival rating" - the percentage chance you have of surviving the danger. These ratings struck me as fairly unscientific, but they were still interesting. If you're curious, the lowest survival rating was 10% for a pyroclastic flow, a mixture of hot gas, rocks, and ash that surges down from an erupting volcano (the event that buried Pompeii). Of course, this had a low risk rating because it's pretty unlikely you'll get stuck in one. One danger I had never heard of is something called a limnic eruption or lake overturn - where a cloud of toxic gases escapes from the bottom of a volcanic lake and suffocates everything nearby - which sounds horrifying but is also pretty rare. Basically, these are fun books for kids to browse and share the facts with friends.

    This is a great book for kids! It includes a single page on each of the hundred dangerous things with a few fun facts, a simple explanation of what to do if you find yourself in the situation, a risk and survival rating, and a couple of pictures. Dangers are split into categories like natural disasters, lost in the wild, and dangerous animals. I think the explanations give a good overview and could definitely inspire kids to check out more detailed books on some of their favorite dangers. I would be wary of recommending this to kids who are natural worriers, as they may find even more situations to be concerned about. However, it could also assuage their fear if the risk and survival ratings are low/high for their particular fear (though a new fear could replace it). The only detraction is that the author doesn't include where she got her information (especially how the survival and risk factors were calculated), and does not include any recommended books for additional information.

    100 most dangerous things on the planet tells many different stories about different events and most dangerous things on the the planet and how to avoid them. some major events of the book are some known world wide like the titanic incident in this case the cause of it "an iceberg". the book also tell you how to get you out of the situation. there weren't any characters in this book but the characters of the book could be the animals and etc. all they do is kill and the growth in them is not a good type of growth. the things i liked about the book is the different disasters you can come across during your average day in the world. another hing i liked was how it got into detail about how to prevent these situations and also how to save your self.the things i didn't like was really nothing to tell ya the truth the best survival guide question i have for the author is how many survial guides do you have if not not you should make more

    100 Most Dangerous Things of the Planet by Anna Claybourne lists and describes 100 Dangerous Things. She provides a (risk) rating chart (1-5). 5 being Frequent , and 1 being Rare. The other '100 Most...' books didn't have a 'Survival Rating' but this one did, and it was really cool. For example, the Survival Rating of you surviving A Pack of Wolves is 70%, and the risk rating is Rare. This book is: well written, informative, and a super fun read. A very enjoyable book. I would be able to read this book multiple times, and still enjoy it just as much as the first time I read it. Rating: 4 stars because I really liked it. Timeline: Some, but I am not going to list it.2015-Summer-Reading-Review

    I just love this book, it may not hook you up for a long time even after you read it like the Snow Child does, but it is for everyone. People naturally like to read stuff like top tens and records, so if you like Guinness world record and stuff like that, I'm recommending this. I like how unlike any other typical top ten book where they just list the facts, Anna Claybourne describes how it feels to be in that situation, what you should do, and fun facts about it. The second after I read the first page, I knew this was for me. I couldn't stop, I couldn't put it down, even when my friends tried to lure me into doing something.

    Do you know what to do if you find yourself caught in the path of a supervolcano or a wildfire, or adrift at sea with no boat? What should you do if you come upon quicksand, are the victim of a cobra attack, or if it begins raining frogs? The likelihood of any of these things --or 94 others--happening to you is given in this book, along with your chances of survival and what to do if you find yourself in one of the dangerous situations included. The attractive layout incorporates sharp photos and call-outs. With such a high-interest topic, this title should stay in continuous circulation with upper-elementary through high school readers.

    A high interest read about surviving the most dangerous things on the planet. Topics include dangerous weather, animalsnatural disasters, being lost, dangers caused by humans (mostly human technology failing i.e. bridge collapse, sinking ship etc.)Each topic is presented in 3-4 paragraphs with a photo and extra information is included in sidebars. Topics are exciting for both boys and girls and the advice given for survival is solid. Because information is presented 1 page at a time this is a great book to give reluctant readers who may be discouraged by the size/length of a middle grade novel.Overall, a fun summer read for grades 3-5, especially boys.

    This book is a non fiction book. It is interesting in many ways. It tells you about some of the most dangerous things in the world. Some of these things have to do with Natural things, animals, or destruction. It also tells you what to do in case of this situation, and what to do to avoid these dangerous things happening. Tsunami. I would recommend this book for kids or people who are interested in science. This book uses context from real life situations that could happen. Some words in this book is used in high vocabulary. If you like science or learning about real life situations you can read this book. This book isn't challenging but is is very interesting.

    I thought this book taugh me alot about natural disaters and much more. I liked the way it was set out, telling us the name of disater, how dangerous it is, and our chances of suviving the incident. And information as well.This book has helped me, if I was in a disater then I would know how to escape, or best way to survive. This book is really well done with how its layed out and what we could do in these dangerous situations.

    Since I'm a bit of a worrywart anyway, I thought it would be best to be prepared in those kinds of situations that I worry will happen. So now I know how to survive various kinds of weather, animal attacks, and situations that are human-caused, such as a bridge collapsing.
