"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

Praise for I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005:

“Expressive illustrations capture the drama of the storm and its aftermath, but the book’s real power comes from its exploration of what it means to be a hero.” -- Booklist
