Here's what a few people are saying about the books.

Explorer HQ is an exciting and inspiring book, its missions show that adventure is to be found everywhere. To go on an adventure all you need is an independent and curious mind. Question, experiment, explore. Arita Baaijens, Desert Explorer
THE KIDS' CLASSIC - Attempting to travel with a wriggly child? Buy a copy of Explorer HQ, a book of 102 spy-style tasks and assignments, such as 'How far can you travel while sucking the same mint?' and 'Make a map revealing local cat routes'. It's like bringing along a nanny with endless patience and a James Bond fixation. Sunday Times Travel Magazine
Adventure - no matter how small - makes everyone feel alive. Exploring, discovering, even failing, are great for the soul. This book is proactively making sure that kids today will continue to get pleasure from the unknown and exciting. Justine Curgenven, adventure filmmaker & expedition seakayaker
This superb book encourages children to get out there and have adventures in all sorts of imaginative and fun ways. Highly recommended. Rob Lilwall, crossed Siberia by bicycle in winter
Explorer HQ is bold, cool, exciting, innovative, geographic, educational…and just plain fun! Every curious kid, budding geographer, and responsible parent should have a copy! National Geographic Education
Explorer HQ is splendid - great fun, and a lovely way to get children out into their environment and using their brains. Sue Palmer, author of Toxic Childhood
We love the creativity of Explorer HQ and the way it creates experiences for all children so they can share, learn and play together. Pinkstinks Approved
Designed to be read, scribbled on, illustrated, smeared, scratched and sniffed, it may just be the most revolutionary geography-related book ever published. Geographical Magazine
National Trust / Hay Festival Outdoors Book of the Year 2011
Learning to engage with the world around you is the key to effective citizenship education, Explorer HQ sits at the heart of what we believe is good citizenship education! Ade Sofola, Citizenship Foundation
Children of all ages have an appetite for thirst for exploration, adventure and challenge. And the world around them, while not without its dangers, is full of wonder, surprise and delight. Yet all too often, we grown-ups let fear and anxiety get the better of us, and get in the way of giving children a taste of freedom. So hats off to the Geography Collective for taking a stand against the cotton wool culture and doing their bit to expand the horizons of childhood. Tim Gill, author of 'No Fear: Growing up in a risk averse society'
This book is brilliant! Mark Kalch, professional explorer
