More About the Author

Lauren Tarshis often wonders how she came to spend most of her waking moments thinking about disasters, as the author of the children's historical fiction series "I Survived." Each book takes readers into the heart of history's most thrilling and terrifying events, including the sinking of the Titanic, the Shark Attacks of 1916, Hurricane Katrina, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the San Francisco earthquake, 9/11, and the Battle of Gettysburg. Writing these books often makes her feel very nervous, as though at any moment a volcano could erupt right outside her window. Then again, she has learned a thing or two about avoiding being eaten by a shark.
Lauren is also the author of the the award-winning Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree and its sequel, Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell in Love.

Format: Paperback
I am struggling with getting my 9 year old (in the 4.1 to 5.1 AR Zone) son to love reading and he is fighting me tooth and nail, every step of the way, from dusk till dawn, inside and out, top to bottom, fluoxetine to alprazolam, etc.etc., so this book has been a great blessing.

The book is told from the perspective of the most likely reader, a 10 year old boy how survives katrina. This book is 95 pages long with a 3 page addendum that answers questions about after the storm/ aftermath. You will find illustrations about every 10 pages (my son still likes pictures).

My son really developed a new empathy of the Hurrican Katrina and he was very concerned about the main character, little boy named 'Barry' and 'Cruz' the dog that survived with him.

This is exactly what some boys need in books: Action, Action, and more Action. I hope the author will continue to churn these little gems out.
