Item Description...
In this stunning picture book, Steve Jenkins takes us to Mount Everest - exploring its history, geography, climate, and culture. This unique book takes readers on the ultimate adventure of climbing the great mountain. Travel along and learn what to pack for such a trek and the hardships one may suffer on the way to the top. Avalanches, frostbite, frigid temperatures, wind, and limited oxygen are just a few of the dangers that make scaling this peak one of the most extreme physical challenges one can experience. To stand on the top of Mount Everest is to stand on top of the world. With informative text and exquisitely detailed cut paper illustrations, Steve Jenkins brings this extreme journey alive for young adventurers.

The Top of the World: Climbing Mount Everest  Feb 25, 2006
Nice to find a nonfiction book that is fairly easy to read, well told story and not condescending.
Great Facts, Interesting For Young (and older) Readers  Sep 19, 2005
This is a neat book. My seven year old, who has been into a real Mt. Everest phase for about six months, loves it.

In a few pages, this book clearly tells about climbing the earth's highest peak, provides a lot of really interesting factoids about Mt. Everest, maps the way up the mountain and displays some of the equipment high mountain climbers must carry. The reader will also learn about how mountains are formed, a bit about the Sherpas and their reverence for the mountain and many other interesting things.

Both my son and I have enjoyed this very much. It is a good basic book for kids who have learned to read and are moving to more challenging subjects. That this subject is interesting as well is a plus.

I couldn't decide if I liked the illustrations or not. No photos, just Eric Carle-style cut-outs (but much more realistic and finely detailed than Carle's work). The illustrations work well and are detailed, but I would have enjoyed a couple of photographs of the mountain.

A great read for kids and adults alike!  Aug 11, 2001
A phenomenal book that takes the reader on a trek up Mount Everest. Torn paper collage illustrations are a beautiful complement to the informative facts about Mt. Everest and mountain climbing. The book is full of fun and interesting facts. I especially appreciated the comparative illustrations that showed the relative heights of the seven highest mountains and the mountain life on Mt. Everest.
beautiful book  Jun 22, 2000
My children, ages 4 and 7, love this book. It is beautifully illustrated with collages (do not expect photographs). It has multiple levels of information that make it possible for the children to read it again and again.
beautiful, creative, absorbing, and my kids love it!  Jan 22, 2000
I bought this book because I love Steve Jenkins' other books. His technique is so creative--the papers he uses (I wonder if he makes some of them) and how he uses them evoke so much--texture, color, temperature. My 8 and 10 year old boys loved this book, and we are Mt. Everest nuts. There's plenty of room on the bookshelf for books with photos (Ghosts of Everest: The Search for Mallory & Irvine is truly wonderful), but Jenkins' book is not only informative--very!--but it is poetry with paper. I highly recommend this book, along with Jenkins' other terrific books.
