SPOOKY LAKES... THE BOOK!
Pre-order the book I wrote and illustrated inspired by Spooky Lake Month! It will come out Fall 2024!
"Dive into the most mysterious waters around the world (if you dare) in this illustrated middle-grade nonfiction book, from TikTok creator and educator Geo Rutherford!
Some of Earth’s strangest—and creepiest—wonders lie deep below the surface. There’s Lake Natron, a Tanzanian lake so briny that its waters can mummify any creature that touches its surface; Lake Maracaibo, a Venezuelan tidal bay where a constantly brewing storm sends an average of 28 lightning bolts per second into the water; and at the bottom of Lake Superior, the crew of theUSS Kamloops—which mysteriously disappeared in 1921—remains somehow almost perfectly preserved to this day.
From hit series “Spooky Lake Month” (over 65 million views!)—comes a thrilling nonfiction book that plumbs the depths of unusual lakes around the world. Middle-grade readers will learn not only about the science of hydrology, but why understanding the natural world is crucial to protecting it from pollution and climate change."
