“The text provides enough detail to keep youngsters interested and the pages are filled with clear maps, colorful illustrations, current-day photos of the site, and reproductions of artifacts. Three-dimensional paper sculptures of contemporary buildings allow readers to peek inside, and a pop-up image of the volcano is a real attention-grabber.” ~School Library Journal
