Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-- Three dramatic stories of rescues--tales that could bring chills to readers. Unfortunately, their impact is lessened by the informal fictionalized presentation of the facts and the use of first names. The only indication that the stories are true is the dateline at the beginning of each of the three episodes. The first rescue involves a skydiver who is knocked unconscious and unable to open her parachute. In the second episode, a boy manages to grab a young girl away from the jaws of an alligator. The last event recounts the amazing rescue of a toddler who fell into a deep well. As beginning-reader fare, the book does fill the bill for readability at the late primary level. However, the present-tense narratives and the lack of specific facts make it less successful as nonfiction. The illustrations are realistic and aid comprehension. Especially well done are the diagrams depicting the child's entrapment in the well and the efforts taken to reach her. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
Hazel Rochman
A skydiving collision and rescue in midair; a girl snatched from the jaws of an alligator; a toddler saved after falling down an abandoned well: the three exciting true rescue stories in this title in the Step into Reading series are told with realistic detail and suspense that will make kids read on because they can't wait to know what happens. The color illustrations are unexceptional, but they show lots of action and an occasional intriguing diagram of the rescue operation. And after all the danger, there's the reward: the boy hero who confronted the glaring alligator receives a medal for bravery from the president.
