History plus meteorology equals hilarity in this heavily illustrated, nicely designed jaunt through four billion years of Earth's history. What happened to the dinosaurs? When was the Year without a Summer? What's the connection between the Little Ice Age and the greatest violins ever made? Christie explains it all in his book, which incorporates wacky full-color cartoons, goofy captions, and a humorous, irreverent text. Readers will learn about greenhouse gases, glaciation, and the climate effects of Earth's wiggly orbit.--Paula Willey"School Library Journal" (09/09/2014)
