Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A clear, simplified, step-by-step explanation of how earthquakes occur. Maps of the world detail the plates on the earth that move, and the location of most earthquakes. After listing safety rules during earthquakes, current research on prediction is discussed. The informative double-page illustrations are dramatically framed with images of "crashing" buildings or fragments of rocks and lumber. The heavily outlined black ink drawings are tinted with watercolors and are naturalistic but with only the basics represented. A blackbird on every page acts as an amusing visual connection. There is an experiment to "create your own earthquake." 2002, National Geographic Society,
— Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
