“This series introduces young readers to some of the world’s greatest mysteries and asks ‘are they just stories, or are they based on facts?’ Broken out into short chapters, each book introduces the mystery, gives an account of the first reports, talks about specific sightings, and then exposes the fakes and gives evidence for and against. Many of the pages have a Q&A at the bottom, which answers a question related to each chapter. Photographs are high quality and large. The presentation of the information is well balanced and allows for open discussion of the topic. Recommended.”—Charlie Leckenby, Library Media Specialist, St. Mary’s Academy, Englewood, Colorado

School Library Journal,

“Geared toward beginning readers, these attractive volumes raise more questions than they answer, but they are a delight to peruse. Featuring an array of boldly colored graphics, this set will encourage readers to turn the pages. The large-font text includes examples of each phenomenon. For example, [Is ESP Real?] covers Wolf Messing and his telepathic bank-robbing experiment. Illustrative Q & A panels appear along the bottom of about a quarter of the pages in every title. Readers are encouraged to arrive at their own conclusions regarding each topic’s existence after considering the presented facts and history. These books will spark classroom debate.”—Series Made Simple

Booklist Review,
November 1, 2013

“By now, there are more paranormal kids’ books than there are documented paranormal experiences, but the Unexplained: What’s the Evidence? series carves a welcome niche by introducing a healthy dose of skepticism. The design here is clean and works in concert with short sentences and brief “Q&A” factoids. Overall, this is solid stuff for teaching high-interest critical thinking.”—Daniel Kraus
