Just as Robert Harris’s “Pompeii” managed to capture the spirit and sensations of the Roman Empire, along with a 1st century CE scientific look at volcanology vs. the “The gods are angry with us!” approach one expects from watching old movies, Lauren Tarshis does the same in “I Survived the Destruction of Pompeii, AD 79”. Except Ms. Tarshis uses a lot fewer pages and a lot fewer / smaller words to accomplish this task. (Not to take away from Harris’ excellent book, but to praise Tarshis!) Young slave Marcus must deal with the realities of living as a non-citizen in the Roman Empire, of having his family separated through the sale of his father, of being beaten for not carrying out the expressed wishes (or even non-expressed) of his master. If this sounds like something set in the pre-Civil War south, you may have caught onto an unintended parallel – or perhaps the author meant to convey this after all! However, there are differences – American slaves weren’t sent to face gladiators and wild beasts in what passed for entertainment. And American slaves weren’t facing earthquakes and a smoking mountain right next to their home. Lauren Tarshis’s “I Survived” series successfully conveys the sensation of historical disasters and the times in which they are set to middle grade readers by centering on a protagonist of their own age. “I Survived the Destruction of Pompeii” is another fine addition to that collection. RATING: 5 stars.

This series is fantastic, and provides fictional information including nonfiction. It was great , however I believe the Gettysburg and Nazi ones Were better. A must read!

Name:above. Age: 4. Rank: warrior(wants to be leader). Gender: female. Looks: beautiful silver fur with black streaks,white paws and tail, one green eye and one blind blue eye, back left leg with a permanent scar. Overall, young but toughlooking and beautiful. Personality: brave, good heart, noble, fair, willing to help those who are hurt. Abilities: fast runner,strong fighter, amazing climber, skillful swimmer. Likes: helping others, food, staying strong, those who love others. Hates: evil hearts, seeing others hurt, not being able to help. Life Story: born to a mother named Brownstorm who was sick, Silverdawn(then known as Silverkit) came along with 4 other kittens, two who died right after birth. Silverkit and her two brothers, Thornkit and Flamekit, did amazingly well despite thier sick mother. When they were five weeks old, their clan was attacked by foxes. Silverkit, wanting to help, launched herself at one that tryed to hurt Brownstorm. But the other fox got to her mother and killed her. Silverkit wailed with rage, and scratched the fox she was attacking in the eye, only to get bitten in her little leg, and flung across the camp, facedown in the dirt, causing her blue eye to go blind. As she tryed to get up, she mewed in pain, and was about to collapse back down when the medicine cat, Berryfur, picked her up and carried her to the safety of the medicine den, where, thankfully, her brothers were too, hiding out. When they saw their hurt sister, they exclaimed, "Silverkit! What happened to her!?!" Meanwhile, outside, a big cat was fighting Silverkits previous opponent, saying," how,ungh,dare you,ungh, hurt my,ungh, DAUGHTER!" Then, after a scratch at the fox's throat, it ran away, the other still sniffing Brownstorms dead body. Silverkits father, Hazelfur, hissed at the fox," and youre going to get it for killing my mate." As Hazelfur started to advance towards the fox, it yelped and ran away, remembering the threat. At his satisfaction, Hazelfur went the medicine den, not wanting to hear the cheers and thanks meant for him and Silverkit. When he saw the how hurt she was, he whispered to the trembling kit," im back. Im sorry i couldnt get here sooner. I promise i will nevet leave the clan again." "Daddy? Do you think i will become a warrior?", Silverkit whispered. " Yes, i think youll make a fine warrior.", he answered. As she drifted off to sleep, he lay next to her, protectively, and went to sleep as well. ***** Now Silverdawn is doing great as a young warrior, and so are her brothers, Thornleaf and Flamesun. Their father is doing good as well, although he will soon join the elders. Silverdawn wants to be leader, and knows she is worthy of it. She has been through a lot, and is still standing strong. Please make her leader.
