Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
The authors present solid explanations of natural disasters such as tsunamis, earthquakes, avalanches, and volcanic eruptions. Some personal stories and examples of specific disasters will help readers relate to the topic. The accessible text is accompanied by black-and-white cartoons, maps, photographs (some rather dark and murky), and diagrams. A section on further research allows interested readers to delve deeper.
