Global travel authority Lonely Planet has released six new books in its best-selling series for 8-to-11-year-olds, Not-for-Parents.

Revealing a world of intriguing stories and fascinating facts about the most exciting places on earth, the six new titles are:

Not-for-Parents: Extreme Planet (AU$29.99/NZ$30)
Exploring the most extreme “stuff” on earth, Not-for-Parents: Extreme Planet is a whirlwind tour of the highest, deepest, widest, narrowest, coolest, hottest, scariest, smelliest things on the planet. What’s the longest place name? The oldest fossil? Most treacherous road in the world and why? Most dangerous food to eat? Scariest place to stand because you’re most likely to be struck by lightning? It’s all in Not-for-Parents: Extreme Planet.

Not-for-Parents: How to Be a World Explorer (AU$24.99/NZ$30)
An “all-terrain training manual”, Not-for-Parents: How to Be a World Explorer has everything you need to know to venture through all the landscapes on earth, as well as through the air, over the seas and under the waves. Learn how to cope with searing heat and intense cold; find food and water in the wild; avoid deadly diseases; and fight back against man-eating beasts. An ideal book for The Hunger Games generation.

Not-for-Parents: Country Guides (AU$19.99/NZ$20 ea.)
This month also sees the release of new Not-for-Parents books devoted to four of the world’s most exciting countries. Not for Parents: Australia, China, Great Britain and USA are pitched perfectly for younger readers.
