Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Recent disasters are given complete explanations in these series offerings. In Fukushima, Arato does an admirable job explaining the complicated workings of a nuclear plant and what went wrong. The book will draw readers in right away, opening with an amazing photo of a boat stuck on top of a building. Sandy is peppered with "It Really Happened…" boxes that personalize the tragedy. Both titles offer portraits of people suffering through these difficult events and working toward solutions. Maps, pictures, and side boxes complement each volume. The writing is as clear as it can be, given the complex subjects—Fukushima is especially challenging to understand. What hits home here are the incredibly powerful forces of nature, met with the equally powerful force of human resilience. These are solid works, ideal for reports and browsing.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
