Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What should you do if you get lost at sea? What if you are surrounded by water but cannot drink a drop? Many people who get lost at sea eventually perish, but this book provides critical information about how to survive a difficult situation. Whether you are being attacked by sharks, dehydrated, or starving, this book gives helpful information about what to do. There are also real life survival stories with details about why some people lived to tell the tale while their friends did not make it. Ideally readers will never be in this life-or-death situation, but O'Shei tells people when to abandon a sinking ship, how to get water, how to find food, and the best way to prevent hypothermia. There is also helpful advice about avoiding sharks and sending rescue signals to ships and planes. Readers will be drawn into this concise, well written book about survival at sea; the photographs add suspense and excitement to the text. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
