Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-5-Blending specific information with dramatic storytelling, these accounts of some of the world's most ambitious construction projects all capture a sense of their awesome scale. The volumes recount massive obstacles, hazards, worker abuses, and environmental stresses. Other issues are also covered. ("The number of people who died building the Great Wall may have exceeded 1 million.") Authors highlight the ingenious, often unique, engineering that made each project possible. Enhanced by sidebars, color photos or period images, and helpful resource lists, these titles all make riveting reading.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

From Booklist

This short, illustrated book in the A Great Idea series introduces the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), designed to test certain theories in particle physics. Supported by many nations and built near Geneva, Switzerland, the LHC is a 16.8-mile circular tunnel. Fernandes discusses the challenging construction of the facility as well as a few of its purposes and achievements. Illustrations include photos and digitally created diagrams. The author writes in clear language, explaining most terms and concepts introduced along the way. Students who have studied some physics will especially appreciate the detailed explanations of what happens within the collider. This is one of the few books on the subject published for young people, and readers need not comprehend everything about the LHC to gain an appreciation for the accomplishment it represents. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan

More About the Author

Bonnie Juettner Fernandes spent most of her formative years in two extreme climates: the Sonoran desert (south of Tuscon, Arizona) and the interior of Alaska (the village of McGrath, on the Kuskokwim River). She graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, in 1990, and went on to graduate school at Loyola University Chicago, completing an M.A. in 1992. She spent several years working in the Chicago area, as a legal secretary in the Loop, an administrative assistant at Chicago Abused Women Coalition (which at the time was headquartered in Wicker Park's Tower building), and as an editor at a small textbook development house (Proof Positive/Farrowlyne Associates) in Evanston. During that time, Bonnie also developed an interest in self-defense and martial arts, studying at Chimera Self-Defense for Women and at Thousand Waves Martial Arts & Self-Defense Center.

Bonnie first began working as a freelance writer in 1998, writing reference books for children and teenagers. Her first book, 100 Native Americans Who Shaped American History, and her 2009 book, The Seed Vault, both received a five star rating on Amazon from the Midwest Book Review; 100 Native Americans was also reviewed by the School Library Journal. Her book Hybrid Cars (2011) was favorably reviewed by Booklist. She has also been published in a children's magazine, Babybug.

In 2012, Bonnie branched out and began to pursue her passion for spiritual writing. She currently writes a tarot-related blog (www.tarotsalve.com) and offers tarot readings and reiki, but continues to work on reference book and textbook projects as well.
