The stories are always about a kid (usually 11yo) who lives through historical disasters, and we learn about those disasters through his/her eyes.
The tales are well-written and include facts- as well as historical fiction to hold the audience’s attention.
They are exciting and sad; gripping and profound; tragic and heartwarming. You can always count on the main kid-character surviving...but not always the other people in the story.
Your child and you will certainly come away with the intended morals:
*War is Hell. (D day, Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, American Revolution, Civil War etc)
*People can be evil: (Hitler, 9/11, maybe in a few years, Trump will be a subject of one of her books)
*The newest inventions aren’t always the best: (Titanic, Hindenburg)
Don’t turn your back on nature: (Tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, floods)
Animals are wild; don’t turn your back on them either:: (sharks, grizzlies)
And molasses is...well. We are reading that one next.
Really can not recommend enough.
And honestly, this story was just perfect. It was part mystery part thriller, with a good moral, and a sweet ending. Even I got chills in a couple of places, lol! No exaggeration. This was one of my favorites:
"And that's when she noticed something strange...the total silence. The owls had stopped hooting. The night bugs weren't buzzing. The whole forest seemed to be holding its breath.
And then Mel heard a twig snap. Leaves rustling. Deep, wheezing breaths.
The hairs on Mel's arms stood straight up.
She wasn't alone. Something was here.
I actually didn't get my nephew this paperback. I think he's going to love the author enough I took a chance and ordered the first 3 books in this series!!! :)
A reluctant reader would enjoy these!
Thank me after you read the first one. They are all fantastic!
He should know, he's read all of them.
My take on it: Wolverines HAVE picked fights with Grizzlies. AND WON. Grandpa is full of it.
Lauren Tarshis said, "She read at least twenty different books, watched videos and studied photographs and maps." I guess wolverines were in none of them.
Also, they ARE bloodthirsty beasts. They eat whatever comes across their path, including people. Including those poor women this book is based on who were attacked WHILE SLEEPING. If THAT'S not bloodthirsty, she and I have ENTIRELY different takes on what that word means.
I've not read the book, myself, but just these two inaccuracies make me wonder what else is incorrect....

por Lauren Tarshis
En 1967, el Parque de los Glaciares en Estados Unidos vivió un trágico evento que marcó a todos los parques naturales del país: en la misma noche, dos osos grizzliez mataron a dos chicas. A una el oso la tomo por las piernas sobre su sleeping bag y la hizo pedazos. Al novio le metió la madriza de su vida dejándolo al borde de la muerte. ¿Que llevó a los osos a perpetrar tan brutales asesinatos la misma noche y a muchos kilómetros de distancia? La respuesta es aterradora: la misma gente. Los osos iban a comer a los vertederos de basura y uno tenía sus encías llenas de cristales rotos e infectadas; el otro tenía sus patitas llenas de cristales rotos también. Ambos animales estaban consumidos por el dolor.
Hay un libro que trata sobre el tema, La Noche de los Grizzliez, pero en este Lauren Tarshis enfrenta a una niña ficticia contra la furia de dos Grizzliez y la hace identificar el problema de la basura del consumo humano y como afecta este a nuestro planeta de modo atroz. Está bueno.
