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 just starting this one but I have faith it will be as great as the rest.
Really can not recommend enough.

Es Boston en 1919 y en medio frente de uno de los muelles y exactamente al lado de una calle comercial y de un paso elecado de tren, se levanta un tanque impresionante. Todo ese tanque está lleno de melasa, o sea azúcar de caña en forma sustancia dulce y espesa. Para nadie en ese lugar el gigantesco tanque representa una amenaza... Pero es así porque no saben lo que está ocurriendo por dentro, ni tienen idea de que el tanque ha sido construido a lo rápido y sin seguridad. Cuando el tanque explote se va a desatar algo que irónicamente, no tiene nada de dulce.
