Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912:

"The fast pace and intrinsically fascinating disaster story will keep readers turning the pages." -- Kirkus

Praise for I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916:

"This is a gripping story that will hold the interest of reluctant readers." -- SLJ

Children's Literature - Leigh Geiger
It is December 7, 1941 and eleven-year old Danny Crane has an escape plan. His mom meant well when she brought him to peaceful Hawaii, but he was not afraid of living in New York City, even though some of his friends were being threatened by gangs. He was going back to make sure his best friend was OK. Just as he is about to leave, Danny hears the sound of war planes, gun fire, and bombs. Smoke fills the air. Pearl Harbor has been attacked. Tarshis does an excellent job of portraying this surprise attack. She captures the chaos, fear, and destruction in terms young readers can understand. Subplots throughout the story present the life of Japanese Americans in Hawaii and how they were treated after the attack. A fifteen-page appendix explores Japan's motivation for the attacks, America's response, and the changes in Pearl Harbor today. A timeline outlines the events of that fateful morning from 3:40 am, when a US ship first spotted suspicious activity at sea, to 10:00 am when the attack ended. Pencil sketches and a photograph of the Pearl Harbor memorial help bring this book to life. This well-written page turner is aimed at a third and fourth grade reading level but it will appeal to students as old as twelve. Reviewer: Leigh Geiger, Ph.D
